The Celtic Film Series Presents Scottish Gaelic Film:
Às an Eilean
(From the Island)
Based on the Gaelic novella An t-Aonaran (The Hermit)
by Iain Mac a’ Ghobhainn (Iain Crichton Smith)
(1993, 99 min.)
A gifted boy who is preparing to leave his island home to go to university on the mainland falls madly in love with a girl from the neighbouring village. Similarly, his teacher, involved in a photographic study of village life, becomes preoccupied with the young island nurse. Together the stories reflect the fragile balance of human relationships in an isolated rural community.
