The first ever feature documentary in Scottish Gaelic, Iorram is an immersive and poetic portrait of life in the Outer Hebrides, as the islands and the language face an uncertain future. This unique cinematic film is entirely composed from rare archive sound, edited from over 30,000 recordings, and contemporary moving images filmed over three years. The ghostly voices, stories and songs from the last century interplay with stunning observational footage of daily life in the islands today, to create a lyrical and playful dialogue between past and present, and between sound and vision, set to an original score composed and performed by award-winning contemporary folk musician Aidan O’Rourke.
A’ chiad film aithriseachd gu tur ann an Gàidhlig, tha Iorram na dhealbh liriceach air Innse Gall, an-diugh agus an-dè. Tha an Stiùiriche, Alastair Cole, a’ toirt an luchd-amhairc air turas-bogaidh a-steach do chridhe coimhearsnachd a tha air maireadh 1,000 bliadhna, a’ measgachadh clàran fuaim tasglainn de ghuthan bhon t-àm a dh’fhalbh le iomhaighean de bheatha nan eilean san latha an-diugh agus ceòl ùr air a chruthachadh leis an neach-ciùil cliùiteach, Aidan O’Rourke.
