Lost In France

NEWS: Lost In France (Glasgow Film Festival 2017)

As part of Glasgow Film Festival 2017, Niall McCann’s Lost In France is being screened on February 21st followed by a unique gig indeed. The film and concert are taking place at Glasgow’s ABC and will be simulcast at cinemas across the UK before its nationwide release on 24th February.


Lost In France explores the rise of Scotland’s independent music scene in the ’90s, focussed around the section led by cult Glasgow label Chemikal Underground, The Delgados, Bis, Mogwai, Arab Strap and other seminal musicians and bands (including Alex Kapranos who would go on to form Franz Ferdinand). An atmospheric and intimate film it documents a hugely fertile time that perhaps juxtaposes against a tougher climate for emerging bands at the moment.


Revisiting a chaotic trip to Brittany that connects many of the protagonists, the film focuses on those within the groundswell and within the sprawling brilliance of the label and its satellite scenes.


Immediately after the screening, GFF audience members will have the chance to see Alex Kapranos, Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), Emma Pollock, Paul Savage (The Delgados) and RM Hubbert reunite for an exclusive live performance.
