’16 Years Till Summer’ Film Scottish documentary/feature filmed in the Highlands

Director and Cinematographer Lou McLoughlan will cycle to Skye to introduce her film and field some questions. ’16 Years Till Summer’  (Scotland, Iceland, 2015, 87 mins) is directed & Filmed by Lou McLoughlan and developed with assistance from Scottish Documentary Institute.

When Uisdean returns home to nurse his dying father, after spending 16 years in prison, he attempts to re-build a normal life in his home village. Set in the healing and beautiful landscape of the Scottish Highlands, the film inevitably explores themes of redemption but the director’s main focus is on the trusting relationships Uisdean builds with his father and girlfriend; both of whom are inspired by the ‘new start’ he promises to share with them.  But is Uisdean able to change his destructive ways?

“It manages to gracefully explore the effects of isolation and the justice system on the individuals affected before building to a quietly devastating climax. A simple but powerful film.” – The Skinny
