One of the highlights of this year’s Fringe Festival was the Playing With The Past event at Edinburgh’s Film House. Films from the Scottish Screen Archive were combined with live soundtracks provided by local bands eagleowl, FOUND, and Meursault which made for a unique cinematic experience. The short films included John Grierson’s film about Granton’s weather-beaten Trawlermen in the 1930s. Another was an abstract animation created by Evelyn Lambert and Norman McLaren who painted and scratched imagery directly onto film stock.
