The poetry and landscape of Sorley MacLean captured on film by Timothy Neat

Timothy Neat’s 1984 film offers a fascinating insight into the life and work of the man who was Scotland’s most famous Gaelic poet, Sorley MacLean. MacLean talks to fellow poets Seamus Heaney and Iain Crichton Smith about his writing, his life and the landscape which shaped him. The film won the Pascoe MacFarlane Award for best documentary by a new director and the Silver Award for Cinematography in Philadelphia.
