BBC ALBA documentary screens at Canadian film festival

Beatrix Wood

A BBC ALBA documentary was last night screened at FIN Atlantic Film Festival in Canada.

Filmed over 3 years by independent company TrixPixMedia, San Fhuil / It’s in the Blood is an intimate portrait of the crofting calendar on the Hebridean island of South Uist, both past and present.

Film-maker Beatrix Wood has made a name for herself by creating documentaries based on the people, culture and nature of the islands and especially the close harmony with the land.

Beatrix said: "Sculpting stories to work for local, national and international audiences and for interest groups has been at the centre of my work ever since I left film school. We had a hugely enthusiastic response to the original series when it was broadcast on BBC ALBA and are excited to see this film make its way out into the international market."

In the documentary, the contemporary action is interwoven with archive film and photographs, offering a rare insight that evolves like the layers of memory and life stories that the main characters share.

FIN Atlantic International Film Festival is an eight-day celebration of film and media from around the world. It’s a festival that turns Halifax—a charming and historic coastal city—into an international mecca for the arts, abuzz with film lovers and filmmakers alike.

Only two weeks ago BBC ALBA’s animation Tha thu air Aigeann m’ Inntinn was screened at the Cannes Short Film Festival and the channel saw great success at the recent RTS Scotland awards, winning four prizes.

Iseabail Mactaggart, Director of Strategy and Partnerships at MG ALBA, which operates BBC ALBA in partnership with the BBC, said: “This demonstrates the resonance that BBC ALBA’s content has internationally. We have stories that can only be told in our communities and through the medium of Gaelic. These awards and festival appearances help to spread that message and in turn increase the opportunities for international funding and co-productions.”

Beatrix Wood

Chaidh prògram aithris BBC ALBA a shealltainn a-raoir aig Fèis Film FIN Atlantic ann an Canada.

Air fhilmeadh thar 3 bliadhna leis a’ chompanaidh neo- eisimeileach TrixPixMedia, tha San Fhuil / It’s in the Blood a’ toirt thugainn dealbh dlùth-chaidreach a’ leantainn cuairtean na bliadhna mar a bha agus mar a tha, air croitean ann an Uibhist a Deas.

Tha am filmeadair Beatrix Wood aithnichte a-nis airson nam prògraman a tha i a’ cruthachadh stèidhichte air daoine, cultar agus nàdar na h-Eileanan, le fòcas gu h-àraidh air a’ cheangal leis an fhearainn.

Thuirt Beatrix: "Tha a bhith a’ cumadh sgeulachdan a dh’obraicheas airson luchd-amhairc agus luchd-ùidh ionadail, nàiseanta agus eadar-nàiseanta air a bhith aig cridhe m’ obair bho d’fhàg mi sgoil film. Chòrd an sreath gu mòr ri daoine nuair a chaidh a chraoladh an toiseach air BBC ALBA agus tha sinn air ar dòigh glan gu bheil am film air a shlighe a dhèanamh chun mhargaidh eadar-nàiseanta."

Sa phrògram, tha measgachadh de dh’earrainnean ùra, a thuilleadh air film agus deilbh bhon tasglann, a’ toirt sealladh nach eileas a’ faicinn tric air cuimhneachain agus sgeulachdan beatha nam prìomh charactaran.

Tha Fèis Film Eadar-nàiseanta FIN Atlantic, a mhaireas ochd là, a’ dèanamh luach air film agus meadhanan bho air feadh an t-saoghail, a’ tionndadh Halifax gu àite air ghoil le daoine le ùidh ann an filmichean.

Bho chionn cola-deug, bha dealbh-beò BBC ALBA Tha thu air Aigeann m’ Inntinn air a thaisbeanadh aig Fèis Film Goirid Cannes agus a bharrachd air an sin bha soirbheas air leth aig an t-seanail aig duaisean RTS Alba, a’ cosnadh ceithir duaisean.

Thuirt Iseabail Nic an t-Sagairt, Stiùiriche Ro-innleachd is Co-bhanntachd MG ALBA, a tha a’ ruith BBC ALBA ann an co-bhanntachd leis a’ BhBC: “Tha seo a’ sealltainn a’ bhuaidh a th’ aig susbaint BBC ALBA gu h-eadar-nàiseanta. Tha sgeulachdan againn nach urrainn innse ach sna coimhearsnachdan againn fhèin agus tro mheadhan na Gàidhlig. Tha na duaisean agus na fèisean seo a’ cuideachadh le bhith a’ sgaoileadh an teachdaireachd sin, agus ri linn sin, a’ meudachadh nan cothroman airson maoineachadh eadar-nàiseanta agus co-riochdachaidhean.”
