The Heart of Scotland

UK, 1962 (MIFF 1963)

Director: Laurence Henson

Stirlingshire, in the heart of Scotland, is the subject. The commentary, by the Welsh poet John Ormond, tells the country's historical past, and of its present worth. Made with emotion, the film is impeccably photographed in colour.
