The Scottish Screen Archive Event: Persuasion
The return of this archive film event explores a different kind of seeing: how Scottish filmmakers have been tempting and influencing audiences since the early days of cinema.
Join this guided tour celebrating the finest examples of persuasive film, handpicked from the Scottish Screen Archive by independent curator Shona Thomson. From the abstemious Temperance movement to the first filmed sightings of the Loch Ness Monster, this is an extraordinary opportunity to see Scotland’s rich cultural and political heritage on the big screen, with an open discussion afterwards.
