Film premiere, discussion and live music: Karine Polwart, Rachel Sermanni
Premiere screening of short film A Guided Tour of the Unacceptable, a geographical and historical tour of the UK’s nuclear weapons2 on the Clyde and resistance to them, with archive footage of sixties sit-downs, huge demos in the ’80s, canoes buzzing the first Trident arrivals, mass blockades, up to the 21st century XR protesters.
Filmed and edited by Ruth Barrie (Waltzer Films), with narration inputs from nuclear researcher and campaigner John Ainslie and former Peace Camper Jane Tallents, and an impressive musical score by some of Scotland’s leading contemporary musicians.
Followed by discussion and live music with some of the film’s participants, including Rachel Sermanni and Karine Polwart.
Jointly commissioned by Scottish CND and Secure Scotland, this event and the film commemorate the Faslane Peace Camp’s 40th birthday, and the first meeting of the countries that have signed the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, on the 77th anniversary of the US atomic attack on Nagasaki.
