Bill Douglas Trilogy on the big screen

A few weeks back I discussed the merits of Newcraighall-born director Bill Douglas, whose trilogy of films based on his own upbringing – My Childhood (1972), My Ain Folk (1973) and My Way Home (1978) – paved the way for many of today’s independent filmmakers.

Well, in case I didn’t quite convince you to rush out and buy your own copy of the newly-released Blu-ray’s, Edinburgh’s Filmhouse will be screening the films next week as part of their Made in Edinburgh season.

These are not only important films in Britain’s cinematic history but also in Scotland’s and I’d urge everyone to give them a chance.

Visit the Filmhouse website for more information on the screening, taking place on 19 August at 5.45pm.
