Cult-pop raconteur Aidan Moffat sets out to explore Scotland’s past by rewriting and touring its oldest songs. But he doesn’t count on running into 79-year-old force of nature Sheila Stewart – a travelling balladeer who upturns Moffat’s folk assumptions. He believes the old songs are ripe for updating. She does not.
BIFA voters say:
“This was so much more than a ‘normal’ documentary – Aidan came across brilliantly and the director has succeeded in making a niche subject into a very poetic, entertaining and enjoyable film.”
