A Story About Glasgow, Music, Memory and Friendship

Our new documentary – LOST IN FRANCE – hot off it’s premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival – will have its Irish premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh next week.  Directed by Niall McCann (Art will Save The World), LOST IN FRANCE explores the rise of Scotland’s independent music scene in the ’90s, led by cult label Chemikal Underground. Featuring kick ass music from The Delgados, Bis, Mogwai, Arab Strap, Franz Ferdinand and other seminal acts. This is an intimate film exploring friendship, creativity and some incredible music.


“A fascinating film” – The Scotsman
“A warm-spirited mix of glowing nostalgia, tremendous music, gang bonds and on-point
politics” – Screen International
“An intermittently delicate portrait of a particular kind of ageing… This is like finding old
photos in the cupboard, being prompted to remember” – Eye on Film

LOST IN FRANCE film screening & special Q+A with Emma Pollock of The Delgados, Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai, Paul Savage and Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, as well as director Niall McCann.

• Our new film collaboration with English sound artist OBERMAN KNOCKS just premiered at THE LOWRY MUSEUM in Manchester.  30 DAYS OF THE SMITHS  features interviews with people from the Salford area with the surname Smith, carried out by the national poet of Scotland, Jackie Kay. These were combined with samples from the music of The Smiths, processed and incorporated into Knocks’ audio soundscape – which hears ‘real’ Smiths reflect on life in Salford, their relationship with their own name, and how it affects their identity. Still Films Paul Rowley directed a new 60 minute film work to accompany the sound in collaboration with London based design company PONY.

• This week in NEW YORK CITY we produced the first in a series of collaborations with GAYS AGAINST GUNS – a new group set up after the horrific attack on the LGBT community in Orlando. You can check out the video HERE – a moving memorial to those who lost their lives.
