The men, women and children of Inverness and elsewhere / Fiction / English
The breakthrough first professional film by the legendary Peter Watkins, made when he was working at the BBC. Watkins takes an original and radical approach to the 1746 Battle of Culloden, adopting a camera style familiar from television news and conducting on-camera interviews with the actors, who respond in character. The result is a film of tremendous immediacy that offers a vivid and heightened reconstruction of the brutal conflict. [12A]
