This screening is followed by a Q&A with Aidan Moffat and director Paul Fegan, as well as a live acoustic set from Aidan Moffat.
Cult-pop raconteur and former Arab Strap frontman 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 his assumptions. He believes the old songs are ripe for updating. She does not. With Stewart's wrath ringing in his ears, Moffat embarks on a road trip that finds him dressed for battle in a Highland graveyard, caught between feuding monster hunters at Loch Ness, and singing in a dismissive farmer's kitchen – before facing Stewart in his home town of Glasgow for an unlikely final showdown, in this funny wee film about music and death.
Where You're Meant to Be, dir. Paul Fegan, UK 2016, 76 mins
