Regional Premiere

A fantastical portrayal of the ruins of a fallen empire, combining grand narrative with cheap product placement. Narrated by a statuesque Britannia Goddess, and adapting various existing tales and drawing on a range of genres from the musical to the battlefield conflict, Maclean plays all the characters, in an elaborate combination of prosthetic make-up, historical costume and Union Jack emblazened tourist tat.

Commissioned for the Margaret Tait Award 2013 in conjunction with Glasgow Film Festival, Creative Scotland and LUX.

Glasgow-based artist Rachel Maclean graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2009 and has since exhibited across the internationally – including, a 2013 solo presentation I Heart Scotland at The Edinburgh Printmakers.

In 2013 she was the recipient of the Margaret Tait Award and received a nomination for the Film London Jarman Award. She has upcoming solo exhibitions at CCA, Glasgow and Comar Gallery, Mull.
