This trio of films about a boy growing up in a harsh mining community represents perhaps the peak of Scottish filmmaking. Bare narrative, stark images, painful memories – the distillation of feeling on screen is as close to poetry as cinema gets. Part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival 2010.
