Rogues, Rascals and Runaways is a film about horse-drawn travellers. This film dips into their world for a few weeks in springtime as three 'living' wagons travel along beside the motorway then over the stormy mountains into Dumfries and Galloway, finding sanctuary in the small village of Durisdeer. (from £8.00)
The local people are invited to watch a film about travellers, and are welcome guests at a magical wedding ceremony in the woods at night. This documentary was made by Frances Higson, producer of the acclaimed, multi-award-winning film The Magdalene Sisters.
Rogues, Runaways and Rascals was premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2002 and was nominated for the Saltire Society Grierson Award for Best Short Documentary. It has been shown recently at the Cork Film Festival in Ireland, and is being screening at the Robert Burns Centre Film Theatre, Dumfries on Saturday 9 November.
