'Fair Isle's Research and Demonstration MPA' (short 5 minute film by Liz Musser about Fair Isle's proposed Marine Protected Area.
Featuring Inge Thomson
In May 2014 award winning composer Inge Thomson took her band back home to Fair Isle for the premiere of her project "Da Fishing Hands".
This project, a collaboration with Inge's late cousin, the poet and musician Lise Sinclair, was inspired by the Fair Islanders' enduring campaign to gain Marine Protected Area status for the waters around their small island.
Filmmakers Andy Crabb and Peter Cutts travelled with Inge and her fellow musicians, and other artists brought together by Cape Farewell and Ruth Little to document the performance and to listen to the voices of the Island residents.
This film is the result of that journey.
'Da Fishing Hands' (11 minute film by Andy Crabb and Peter Cutts, featuring Inge Thomson and Her Band and the musical premiere on Fair Isle in 2014).
