Television and Film from the Highlands of Scotland

Dead Sea Reels

A 20 minute short, starring  the legendary Ian Bannen in what he claimed to be one of his favourite roles, it had the Sunday Herald’s Ajay Close “greetin’ on the settee”.  In it Bannen played a fatherly priest who befriends a deeply grieving father ( Murray Hunter). The film won Best European Short at the Vendome Film Festival and Best of the Fest at the Chicago Silver Images Film Festival.

Reviews
A quite exquisite and extremely thoughtful film, directed with his customary style by Don Coutts. It includes a performance by Ian Bannen which approaches exquisite perfection.
