We Are Northern Lights (2013)

Dir. Nick Higgins / UK / Documentary / Colour / 98m

A collaborative film project about contemporary Scotland crowd sourced from footage shot by people across the country. Contributors were asked to respond to three questions: "What can you see?", "What do you wish you had seen?" and "What would you like to see?”

This is Scotland as it perceives itself, with nobody censured. Though there are both sad and tough stories, the overall tone is resolutely upbeat. We hear tales of personal triumph and numerous people simply talking about their love for the places where they live or like to go adventuring.

From the hearts of the cities to the summit of Ben Nevis, the lochs, the wooded glens, and even down under the sea, the whole country is represented here.
