We live at a moment when seeking to understand our relationship to the wilderness and the past has great power for our imagination.
Simon Miller’s film Seachd: The Inaccessible Pinnacle is mesmerising, soaring with a visual elegance and simplicity that reinforces how we are part of the land and how a story forms the bedrock of a person and a place.
Aonghas is a boy whose parents have recently died and so he goes to live with his grandparents. As he begins to reconcile himself to the tragedy, Aonghas is enchanted by his grandfather’s stories of the past.
Seachd’s dialogue is spoken entirely in Gaelic. Alternating elegantly composed domestic scenes with wide vistas of the hard and rugged Skye landscape the film recalls the movies of Lynne Ramsey and Terrence Malick and perhaps also too John Sayles’ The Secret of Roan Inish. The film is an artful expression of real regional filmmaking and its moving climax reminds the viewer of the power of story to heal and nurture.
Filmed in Scottish Gaelic, this charming family film features stunning scenery and powerful performances from cast members young and old. A young boy, Angus, visit his dying grandfather hoping to learn the truth about the death of his parents. Regaling him with stories from the whole swathe of Gaelic history - poisoned lovers, bloody revenge, water-horses and Spanish gold, his Grandfather leads Angus to one of Scotland's most inaccessible mountains to uncover an ancient mystery.
