Eich Bhana


Eich Bhàna is a short animation that aims to paint a picture of the North West coast of Scotland. Through the story of a fisherman struggling with his fears and with a feral horse, the film explores the relationship between people, animals, and a landscape of sea and mountain. The feeling of isolation between the characters and their environment evolves as the narrative unfolds. Perhaps wilderness can be both isolating and liberating. It won ‘Best Animation’ at MG Alba’s FilmG Awards 2017 (filmg.co.uk) and was also screened at the Hebridean International Film Festival in 2016. The recording features performers Lissa Robertson (violin), Colin MacGregor (guitar), & Niki Dunne (percussion), and was recorded by Ali Hutchison.
