Heartwarming, mystical family drama about a young Gaelic boy’s search for the truth. Visiting his dying grandfather in hospital, young Angus (Padruig Moireasdan), wants to find out the truth about his parents’ death and the truth about the ancient stories his grandfather has told him over the years - stories steeped in gaelic folklore and history. Setting off with his grandson for one last fling, the pair head for one of Scotland’s most treacherous mountains, The Inaccessible Pinnacle, on the Isle of Skye, where an ancient truth is finally revealed.

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.
