Plural Futures Community FilmAugust 2020 — September 2021
ATLAS are working with Skye Climate Action on a Plural Futures community-led film which looks at histories and mythologies of activism, migration, oral history, storytelling, land struggle and colonial wealth on Skye. Beginning with an oral history gathering and series of public events for the first few months, this new community film listens to these histories and speculates on alternate futures on the island.
Following an open call and shortlisting process with Skye Climate Action’s coordinators, artist Andrew Black was chosen to support the making of the film and public research.
Andrew’s experimental videos often look at local ways of being, and queer relationships to place, memory, and the body. Speaking with a range of people from around Skye and Lochalsh, the film will build a picture of Skye’s past and what we might bring with us to the future. Feel free to get in touch if you think you can feed into the research and process. Costs and fees of contributors will be covered by ATLAS.
The film will be screened Summer 2021 in a series of events and conversations reflecting on the process.
