ATLAS Arts is delighted to invite you to the opening night of Eglantine film installation by acclaimed artist and filmmaker Margaret Salmon.
Eglantine, 2016, is a beautiful meditative and enchanting account of a young girl’s real and fantastical adventure in a remote forest one evening. Supported in part by ATLAS Arts, the film is a debut feature from Glasgow-based artist-filmmaker Margaret Salmon.
Through the film and nature study, we follow a girl and her encounters in the woods over one night, having lost her way from her family campsite. The film is realised with an intuitive, improvised approach to performance, camera and sound. Shot on 35mm in various locations around Scotland, including the Isle of Skye, this film draws inspiration from a range of cinematic movements as well as wildlife documentaries to produce a lyrical and sensual portrait of a child’s eye perspective on the natural world.
LAUNCH & IN-CONVERSATION WITH MARGARET SALMON
Margaret Salmon will be in-conversation with Janet Ullman from The Forest School and ATLAS Director Emma Nicolson. The evening will include a screening of the film, a performance by musician Kristen Macbeth who was part of the cast for Eglantine, and a drink and canapé reception in the dining room at Dunvegan Castle.
FREE – booking essential
TRANSPORT – a free bus will leave Somerled Square at 6.30pm, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a seat
