Living Proof

Coming to Scottish screens in Autumn 2021, Living Proof is a new touring film programme from Scotland’s Moving Image Archive that explores the country’s complex relationship to the global climate crisis through film and music.

Curated archive footage tells the interlinked stories of energy, industrialisation, consumerism and the environment, framing Scotland’s history through the lens of the current debate. Living Proof invites viewers to revisit the promises of the past and consider how they relate to our future on this planet. 

With a soundtrack featuring music by contemporary Scottish artists Louise Connell, Brownbear and Post Coal Prom Queen, this feature-length documentary brings Scotland’s evocative screen heritage to cinema audiences across the country.

Is climate change rooted in our history? Can we break free from a boom and bust mentality? What can we do differently to ensure a healthy and sustainable future for generations to come? 

If you’re interested in screening Living Proof at your venue or festival, please fill out the Expressions of Interest Form here and we will be in touch soon with more information.

Living Proof is a partnership project between the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive and Film Hub Scotland.
