A BSL interpreted discussion will be led by Dr Laura Bissell. BSL Interpreter: Amy Cheskin
Titled, “Nothing endures but the land”: Landscape and Identity in Sunset Song, this post film discussion will ask important questions about the contemporary political landscape of Scotland and asks us to wonder; Can Sunset Song help us explore ideas of “nation” or “identity”?
Is Scotland poised upon the “sunset of an age”.
