Atlas Arts Archived Events Film: Luke Fowler's 'Depositions'   For their second screening as part of of Where I Am, and as part of their Broad Reach programme with Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts, ATLAS Arts host a screening of Luke Fowler’s Depositions (2014). Depositions explores the role of the Highland traveller in Gaelic Highland history and culture by combining archival footage from the Isle of Barra, new footage and interviews. The film-work was originally commissioned as part of Artists and Archives: Artists’ Moving Image at the BBC, a residency programme based at BBC Scotland. ‘Luke Fowler’s films dwell on potentiality: what might be, what might have been, what might still be if the world were to turn in a different direction? But film time runs in many directions, as do arguments. Film made only recently can be easily confused with the archival vintage of washed-out or saturated tones and blurred edges.’ David Toop, 2014 Find Out More Open Reading Group 2:   Outsider: Travelling communities and the Outsider, their role in Highland history Free. In addition to the screening and to assist in placing the film in a Scottish island context you are invited to take part in a special reading group for the event. The suggested texts are selected to stimulate discussion on the role of the outsider and the contribution travellers made to Gaelic culture and Highland history and what the public perception of travelling communities are now.
