The second of five short films, made with the collaboration of the residents at North Merchiston Care Home, is now available online.
Directed by North Merchiston is a series of five short films, made with the collaboration of the residents at North Merchiston Care Home. Lead by award winning documentary film maker Duncan Cowles, each resident was encouraged to take control of the filmmaking process and decide upon the direction and what content they’d like to be included and focussed on within the films.
The films were commissioned through Luminate Creative Ageing Festival in association with Scottish Care.
This film, entitled Keep Your Eyes Open and Your Mouth Shut, features Charlie as the star - a 102 year old resident of North Merchiston.
