Into Film Clubs
Into Film Clubs provide opportunities to watch, review and make films.
A dark and unique portrait of Glasgow in the 1970s. When a young boy drowns in a canal, the friend who he was with - James - blames himself. But for a while at least, life goes on for James as usual - making the best of things in the council flat he shares with his parents and two sisters, and a friendship with an older girl who is a target of abuse for the local kids. Ratcatcher is a film where mood and visual images are as important as plot, and the results will stay in the mind long after other films have faded.
Activities to support engagement, debate and reflection alongside a screening from the No Borders, No Boundaries strand of the festival.
A film guide that looks at Ratcatcher (1999), exploring its key topics and themes through informal discussion.
