From Scotland with Love

From Scotland with Love is a visually stunning documentary film from director Virginia Heath put together using archive footage from the National Library of Scotland and Scottish Screen Archive. 

A purely visual film with an accompanying soundtrack from King Creosote and musical direction by David McAulay it's a touching look at the rich culture of life in Scotland over the years.

The film touches on themes that include: work and play, love and loss, migration, fishing, heavy industry, shipbuilding, war and protest, urbanisation and emigration, community, seaside holidays and a good night out.

Its really a great little film. Here's a 'making of' video and interview with the director :

 

There are some great images to be found throughout the 75 minute documentary.
