Lost in France, Irish director Niall McCann’s documentary on the fertile Glasgow indie scene of the 1990s gets a special screening next week at the Triskel in Cork, with a very nice added bonus for those in attendance.
Writes Tina Darb:
Broadcasting live from Glasgow Film Festival to Triskel Christchurch Cinema Tuesday, February 21 Niall McCann’s film ‘Lost in France’ is treated to a unique screening and once-in-a-lifetime gig.
This exclusive cinema event followed is followed by a once-off concert performance broadcast LIVE via satellite from the Glasgow O2 ABC, featuring supergroup which includes Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand), Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), RM Hubbert, Emma Pollock & Paul Savage (The Delgados).
From the heart of Glasgow ‘Lost in France’ brings you a story of friendship, memory and making music. Set in the mid-90s Glasgow, the film follows flourishing indie rock band The Delgados who established cult record label Chemikal Underground, heralding a renaissance of independent music in the city that would bring the likes of Mogwai, Arab Strap and Franz Ferdinand to the world.
