Home movie footage documenting life on Berneray in the 1960s and 70s has been shortlisted in the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

The remarkable haul of forgotten Super8 film was digitised thanks to a crowdfunding appeal and turned into a compelling visual story by co-directors Kirsty Macdonald and Andy Mackinnon.

The resulting feature-length documentary by UistFilm and Hopscotch Films is entitled  DÙTHCHAS | HOME and delves into the “cultural loss and leaving on the island of Berneray.”

The film is now in the prize running in the 75th edition of the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

It will premiere on Berneray on August 18.
