Iorram (Boat Song)


A lyrical portrait of the fishing community in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides, Iorram is the first ever feature documentary in Scottish Gaelic. Painting a portrait of daily life in the islands, observational footage blends with archive sound recordings of stories and songs, all set to an original score by acclaimed folk musician Aidan O’Rourke. 

In a place where the past is the present, Iorram sees director Alastair Cole unearthing treasured tales to create an immersive cinematic visual and audio feast that pulls apart the beating heart of a rugged and isolated community to evoke its working rhythms. Through its storytelling, of toil, laughter and loss, the documentary unmistakably weaves the history of the Outer Hebrides with the lyrical power of the Gaelic language in a tribute to Scottish identity.
