First of five Directed by North Merchiston films launched

Today (Monday 20 March), May: This is Your Life was launched online.  

This beautiful short film is part of a series of five short films entitled Directed by North Merchiston, made with the collaboration of the residents at North Merchiston Care Home, a Four Seasons Health Care home in Edinburgh.

Each of the residents' films - May, Charlie, Edith, John and Margaret - will be made available online on consecutive Mondays over the next 5 weeks.

Lead by BAFTA award winning filmmaker Duncan Cowles, each resident was encouraged to take control of the film-making process and decide upon the direction and what content they'd like to be included and focused on within the films.

This film project was commissioned through Luminate Creative Ageing Festival in association with Scottish Care.

Please feel free to share this information and the films more widely.   We'd also love for you to share your response to them through Twitter at @scottishcare or @DuncanCowles
