“Home” is a short film which is based on a theme from Scotland’s Year of
Stories 2022. Groups applying for funding were encouraged to seek out Iconic Stories, or
New Stories, or Scotland’s Peoples and Places.
Who are the modern-day Scotland’s Peoples? Why is this, Home?
We began asking people that question, and heard some interesting stories that
gave us a picture of a diverse culture in the Easter Ross of today. People from
across the globe had come to recognise this as home, and we felt it was
important to capture their voices in their first language as well as in English.
It was also a great opportunity to work with some of our talented young people.
Michal Szulc and Finley Atkins spoke with, filmed, and edited the story tellers
and you will hear from them at the end. Thanks must go to them for their time,
patience and imagination.
Not everyone we asked was willing to be filmed, but to those who did, thank
We hope you enjoy this short film.
