Docustory | 2m 54s | 2022

Anne Etta is one of the nine women featuring in the "Women of Pairc" collaborative exhibition of portraits and video conversations at Ravenspoint Centre Pairc, Isle of Lewis, on the 18th, 19th and 21st of August 2022.

 

This video was taken as part of the research for this project. It shows Anne Etta, school teacher and crofter, shearing the sheep. Family and friends come together to help as they have always done for generations.

 

The introduction of electric sheep shears has made the process more efficient.

 

However, Anne Etta shows how traditional skills still make quick work shearing a sheep. "That is a wrap, well for the sheep it is!!" she says with a big smile.

Eilean Chaluim Chille:
A centre of early Christianity.

Documentary | 6m 13s | 2022

A short film about the story of Eilean Chaluim Chille, the Isle of St. Columba, in Loch Erisort.

 

St. Columba, was born in Ireland in 521 AD and died in Iona in 597. Much of his life was devoted to evangelising what is now Scotland. It is thought that the influence of his the Celtic Church may have spread to Lewis before 800AD.

 

I wish to thank Donnie Morrison, chairman Comunn Eachdraidh na Pàirc, Pairc Historical Society for telling the story that inspired me to produce this film. Also, I wish to thank John Randall, vice-chair for his help with the captions telling the story.
