Angus Arts to screen film

Have your say

Local charity Angus Arts has arranged another film screening at the Glenesk Retreat for Friday, June 20.

The evening, which has been made possible thanks to NEAT Flicks, supported by Creative Scotland, will see ‘Kiss the Water’ screened.

The acclaimed film, directed by Eric Steel, focuses on the life of Megan Boyd, an expert in tying fishing flies.

Boyd, who passed away in 2001, had her work in museums and the hands of collectors around the world. She was awarded an British Empire Medal.

Sue Waddicor, administrator at Angus Arts, explained: “We’re always on the look out for interesting and intriguing films that will appeal to a local audience, and this unusual insight into Scottish Fly Maker Megan Boyd’s life is one we just couldn’t resist.

“It’s the most magical and haunting mix of documentary and hand painted animation, and you don’t have to be interested in fishing one bit to appreciate it!

“Megan Boyd created miniature works of art, using bits of feather, fur, silver and gold, and the aesthetic appeal of this film is huge.

“It’s one of those films that stays with you long after you’ve seen it and a real must for watching on a big screen.

“The Retreat in Glenesk makes the perfect location for hosting this film, so please come and join us.”

The evening will also include a meal. Sue added: “The evening will start at 7 p.m. with some famous fisherman’s pie (vegetarians also catered for) followed by the screening of the film.”

Kiss The Water (certificate PG) will be screened on Friday, June 20, at The Retreat in Glenesk. The meal will be served at 7 p.m. followed by the film screening. Bar open during the evening.
