Song of a Sourdough - Screening

19 Apr 2024

Screening and talk at Narture Studios, Ayr

Song of a Sourdough began as an experiment in creating regenerative sculptural material, but came to represent renewal and resilience in a personal and societal context – Phil had recently parted from a 31-year career in IT services and the COVID-19 pandemic had just begun. Taking its name from Ayrshire poet Robert Service's poetry collection Songs of a Sourdough, it depicts Phil's processes alongside a narrative that is a reflective journey of coal mining, gold prospecting, de-industrialisation, care, and regeneration. At times deadly serious, the narrative also exposes his wry humour and sense of the ridiculous.

The film will be followed by a talk reflecting on his own renewal and an informal Q & A.
