Synopsis

Scottish filmmaker Bill Douglas had a short but distinguished career in the cinema and collected here are three of his short films from the 1970s which have contributed towards his fine reputation. Presenting a powerful portrait of a tough childhood, all three films follow a young boy called Jamie - loosely based on Douglas himself - as he grows up in the aftermath of World War Two. In the first two films, My Childhood and My Ain Folk, Jamie struggles to find a real place for himself in the tiny village where he lives, moving between relations because his parents can't look after him. But by the third, My Way Home, he's grown older - and is now looking forward to building a brighter future. Sometimes dark in tone but also with unexpected moments of humour, these three films are amazing snapshots of Scotland's past and one boy's journey to adulthood.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
