UK Premiere of Wayland’s Song.

Fri 20th September- 7pm – Kirkcaldy Film Festival- Adam Smith Theatre

Born in Kirkcaldy, brought up in Ballingry, Richard Jobson became a punk icon as the teenage singer of The Skids. But in recent years, it’s as a film director – and one at the very cutting edge of digital technology – that he’s made his mark.

His latest feature, premiering at the Kirkcaldy Film Festival and made using cloud-based Adobe software, is a gripping parable of our times. Wayland (Ballingry native Michael Nardone) returns home injured from service in Afghanistan only to discover that his daughter has vanished without a trace. As he’s drawn into a quest to find her, he ends up on a journey in search of his own damaged soul.

The Skids Live 2010

Starring The Skids, Ian Rankin, The Gospel Truth Choir

20th September 9.45pm – Kirkcaldy Film Festival – Adam Smith Theatre
£7.50 (£6.50) Festival Pass: Entry to every film and event over the three days: £48 (£40)

Three years ago legendary punk band The Skids reformed for a gig in their old stomping ground of Dunfermline. With lead singer Richard Jobson now better known for his filmwork than his music, it’s no surprise that the concert was recorded by Jobson’s regular film making team and spliced together with an onstage interview carried out by novelist Ian Rankin.

The result is amust for fans:not only is Jobson particularly candid about the band’s early days, but that set list – Working For The Yankee Dollar, Into The Valley, The Saints Are Coming,Masquerade –speaks for itself. It’s been out on DVD for a while… but is a must to view on the big screen.

Richard Jobson will introduce this screening.
