Friday 10 December 2010
14:00 - 17:30

Venue: Hunter Lecture Theatre (O17) - eca - 74 Lauriston Place - EH3 9DF

Don't miss our final masterclass in 2010 including the Scottish premiere of the award winning October Country by Mike Palmieri & Donal Mosher.

We are delighted to welcome Mike and Donal to winterly Edinburgh. We saw this film at Sheffield last year and it blew us away!

Synopsis:
Every family has its ghosts. The Mosher family has more than most. Shot over a year from one Halloween to the next, the film creates a stunning cinematic portrait of a family who are unique but also sadly representative of the struggles of America's working class.

Here's a nice review by Ray Pride at New City Film. "More than earns the comparisons that have been made to Grey Gardens with the substantial gift of a lyrical visual style."

A unique opportunity to hear in depth about the making of the film via a collaborative approach between the co-directors.

We're screening the film in Dumfries (RBT) on the 9th (6pm), Edinburgh (ECA) on 10th (2pm) - followed by a masterclass & in Glasgow (GFT) on the 11th (6pm) - followed by a Q&A.
