Glasgow Film Festival
A Portrait of Robert Alan Jamieson


Sat 22 February 2014

Novelist and poet, Robert Alan Jamieson grew up in the crofting community of Sandness, Shetland. This film is based on his a collection of poems Nort Atlantik Drift, described by Jamieson as originally intended ‘for my three sons, a record of who their father might be and who he once thought he
might be. But as with life, the narrative developed in ways I didn’t foresee’. The same could be said of the film as less than a week before filming began his father died at the age of eighty-four – as with life, the narrative of the film developed in ways Alan could not have foreseen.

Robert Alan Jamieson will attend the screening to perform a poem and participate in a Q&A chaired by Mary Blance of Shetland For Wirds.

Screening as part of Nort Atlantik Drift: A Day of Shetland.
