Award winning film maker Duncan Cowles spoke on BBC Radio Scotland this morning about his Directed by North Merchiston project which involved a series of films featuring the residents of North Merchiston Care Home in Edinburgh.
Commissioned by Scottish Care as part of the Luminate Festival, the films are an honest, engaging and entertaining depiction of the residents living at North Merchiston and offer a unique perspective as to living in a care home.
Directed by North Merchiston will premiere within North Merchiston itself tomorrow evening Wednesday 26th October with it’s public premiere taking place at the Scottish Care Annual Care Home Conference on Friday 18th November at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow.
