Dir. Bill Douglas
UK 1972 | Black & white | 48 mins | Cert 18 | Drama
Cast: Stephen Archibald, Hughie Restorick
Set in 1945, the first part of Douglas’ triptych revisits his impoverished childhood, living with his grandmother and half-brother in the Scottish mining village of Newcraighall. The austere but beautiful black-and-white camerawork perfectly captures the harsh realities of an existence which finds the eight-year-old Jamie often taking solace from the movies.
