Six men went out to sea, but only one came back.
Paul Wright studied film at the RSAMD in Glasgow, where he made his first short film Hikikomori, which won the Scottish BAFTA for Best New Work followed by a BAFTA nomination in 2007 for Best Short Film and won Best Drama Award at the RTS awards (2007). Paul joined the Fiction Directing MA at NFTS in 2008. In the same year he made Believe, which won the Golden Leopard for Best International Short Film at Locarno (2009), as well as major awards at Winterthur and Leeds International Film Festival. His next short, Photos of God, was selected for the 2010 Berlin Film Festival. Paul’s graduation film, Until the River Runs Red, won the BAFTA for Best Short Fiction Film in 2011. For Those in Peril is his debut feature.
#1 / Saturday 29 June, 2013 / 22:15 GMTI travelled on the train north from Edinburgh today. By chance I spoke to one lady who had been to see the film todayand had been an extra in it.There was quite a crowd of them on the train from Gourdon where it was filmed I told her my husbands family fished out of Buckie in the 50s 60s and70s. The film sounds amazing and we would love to see it
I hope you will show it in Aberdeen sometime perhaps at the Belmont but give it plenty of promotion as many of the small fishing villages along the north east coast would love to see it. So many could identify with the life of fishermen and the dread of a boat going down.
