Devil's Plantation - Elemental Films

66 films, 2 lives and an ancient secret revealed

The best Scots film of 2013…

Siobhan Synnot, Scotland on Sunday

…a serious work of art, and arguably as seminal a portrait of Glasgow as the novel, The Dear Green Place, the film, Red Road, or Joseph McKenzie’s photographic collection, Gorbals Children. The films are hypnotic. Shot in black and white, the camera contemplative and compassionate, they reveal Glasgow and the surrounding countryside in a new way – beautiful, sinister, languorous, weirdly empty.

Peter Ross, Scotland on Sunday

…lingering, atmospheric, beautifully made, easily comparable to Patrick Keiller’s psychogeographical films of London.
