“Sunset Song”, set in the early part of the 20th Century and on the eve of WWI, depicts the life of an exceptional woman: Chris Guthrie. We follow her passions and struggles from adolescence to motherhood, through to brutal and premature widowhood. All presented against an incomparable Scottish landscape which is inhospitable and ill prepared for the impeding challenges of industrialisation.
The theatrical release is scheduled for 9th March, 2016
