Eich Bhàna (meaning “White Horses” in Scottish Gaelic) is my graduate film from Edinburgh College of Art.
The film aims to paint a picture of a specific place - the North West of Scotland. Eich Bhàna aims to explore the relationship between people, animal life, and the dramatic environment of sea and mountain. The story revolves around that of a fisherman struggling with his fears and with a feral horse stranded on a small island. Initially the characters and their remote location symbolize isolation. However, as the narrative unfolds, this notion begins to evolve. Wilderness can be both isolating and liberating.
Eich Bhàna is currently available to watch on Vimeo: vimeo.com/210055164
