Eilean a’ Cheò | Isle of Mist

a film by Siôn Marshall-Waters and Jan-Holger Hennies

A visual poem that explores people’s experiences on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Our relationship with landscape is particularly evident on the island; in crofting, fishing, tourism and writing. The film conceives landscape as existing beyond a backdrop to our lives. It is something we participate in, constructing it both physically and imaginatively. We shape landscape and are shaped by it.
