BBC ALBA animation selected for Cannes Short Film Festival

Tha thu air Aigeann m’ Inntinn

A short film which visualises the terror and drama facing soldiers in one of Britain’s worst maritime disasters has been selected for the Cannes Short Film Festival.

The BBC ALBA short animation Tha thu air Aigeann m’ Inntinn (You are at the bottom of my mind), based on the Iolaire Disaster, is set to a poem of the same name by acclaimed Gaelic bard Iain Crichton Smith.

In the early hours of 1 January 1919, the naval yacht HMY Iolaire, carrying sailors returning from the war, sank after hitting rocks on its approach to Stornoway, killing over 200.

Commissioned as part of BBC ALBA’s Hogmanay schedule commemorating the 100th anniversary of the disaster, the short film was a labour of love for the Dutch-based Scottish animator Catrìona Black.

Catrìona said: “We have very little visual record of the Iolaire disaster and it was a deeply emotional experience to create one. I’m pleased that the film is finding its way out into the world to share this important story with as many people as possible.”

The programme also earned Am Bocsa, Catrìona Black’s production company, a nomination at the RTS Scotland Awards for Animation & VFX.

The Cannes Short Film Festival takes place from 5-8 September. For more information click here.

Prògram beothachaidh BBC ALBA aig Cannes Short Film Festival

Tha thu air Aigeann m’ Inntinn

Tha film goirid – a’ togail air an oillt agus an dràma a bha air beulaibh seòladairean agus iad an lùib aon de na tubaistean mara is miosa ann an uisgeachan an Rìoghachd Aonaichte - air a bhith air a thaghadh airson duais aig Cannes Short Film Festival.

Chaidh am prògram beothachaidh aig BBC ALBA, Tha thu air Aigeann m’ Inntinn (You are at the bottom of my mind), stèidhichte air tubaist an Iolaire, a dhealbhachadh ris a’ phìos bàrdachd leis an aon ainm le Iain Crichton Mac a' Ghobhainn.

Tràth air madainn 1 Faoilleach 1919, bhuail HMY Iolaire creagan ’s i a' tilleadh a Steòrnabhagh le seòladairean bhon Chogadh Mhòr. Chaochail còrr air 200 duine.

Air a choimiseanadh mar phàirt de chlàr shònraichte air BBC ALBA a bha a’ comharrachadh 100 bliadhna bhon a thachair an tubaist, b’ e obair toileachais a bh’ ann dhan dealbhadair Catrìona NicIlleDhuibh.

Thuirt Catrìona: “Chan eil mòran sa chlàr a sheall tubaist an Iolaire agus ‘s e obair faireachdail a bh’ ann a bhith a’ cruthachadh seo. Tha mi cho toilichte gu bheil am film air a sgaoileadh airson an sgeulachd cudromach seo innse dhan an t-saoghal.”

Chaidh Am Bocsa, companaidh riochdachaidh Chatrìona, ainmeachadh air geàrr-liosta RTS Scotland airson Dealbhachadh Beò & VFX na bu thràithe sa bhliadhna.

Bidh Cannes Short Film Festival a’ gabhail àite eadar 5 agus 8 Sultain agus gheibhear an tuilleadh fiosrachaidh an seo.
