Using the evacuation of St Kilda as a starting point, and with St Kilda evacuee Norman Gillies acting as narrator, the project takes the audience on an emotional and thought provoking journey using new and archive film, music and spoken word.
It features the full soundtrack as an audio CD and "The St Kilda Tapes" film with soundtrack on the DVD, plus a bonus feature of St Kilda Tapes in Japan.
Using the evacuation of St Kilda in 1930 as a starting point, The St Kilda Tapes is a moving musical and visual journey on the theme of home.
What happens if you lose your home? Where do you go? How do you know when and where to put down new roots?
The story in this sister project to The Island Tapes is told with contemporary and archive film alongside the thoughts and memories of St Kildan Norman John Gillies, the Gaelic song of Maeve MacKinnon, and the music of David Allison.
With an hour of great music on the audio CD and 100 minutes of extraordinary video footage on the DVD, The St Kilda Tapes really is a must-see, must-hear package.
