About Film Screening of Scottish Documentary: To See Ourselves

TO SEE OURSELVES is an unexpected, deeply personal account of the referendum as seen through the eyes of a pregnant filmmaker, as she follows her idealist father’s relentless activism and reveals the heart behind the politics during this historic crossroads for Scotland.

Affectionate without being sentimental, TO SEE OURSELVES creates not just a valuable time capsule of a pivotal moment in Scotland’s history, but a film which encourages empathy, self-reflection and open and constructive dialogue about the future.

Director Jane McAllister speaks on the reaction to the film so far: “This is not the kind of documentary most people expect. There is no voice over, no talking heads... real life plays out in front of you, this makes it very emotional.

I have been delighted by the response from audiences so far. People tell me they have been unsure of reliving something that meant so much to them, but when they watch this observational, surprising footage, they see something truthful and life affirming - a reflection of the quirks and familiar habits of Scottish life that you don't normally see on the big screen. It's funny, sad, joyful and poetic - about people and relationships more than the politics.”


To See Ourselves is being distributed by New Licht Films throughout Scotland from January to March 2024. Each screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director and lead protagonists.

Full details of the tour can be found on the film’s website www.toseeourselves.film
And on social media @newlichtfilms.
