Following on from the fantastic Q&A with Emma Pollock and RM Hubbert in the IFI last Friday, Lost In France will screen on two more days in the IFI. See the documentary on Sunday the 12th or March and Wednesday the 15th of March. Tickets are available to book now at this link.

The film charts the rise of Scotland’s indie music scene in the 1990s led by iconic Glasgow label Chemikal Underground, the Delgados, Bis, Mogwai, Franz Ferdinand, Arab Strap and other seminal musicians and bands.  Following the screening, audiences will be able to experience the magic live as Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand), Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), RM Hubbert and Emma Pollock and Paul Savage (The Delgados) reunite for a once-in-a-lifetime performance.

In Glasgow in the mid-1990s, flourishing indie rock band The Delgados 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.

Lost in France, an exhilarating new documentary, explores the rise of this Glaswegian music scene, revisiting a defining, chaotic trip to France in the musicians’ early careers. Featuring a stunning mix of live performances and frequently hilarious interviews, the film reunites key label personnel in an intimate exploration of friendship, memory and making music.

Written and directed by Niall McCann and produced by Nicky Gogan and Paul Welsh for Still Films and Edge City Films with funding from the Irish Film Board and Creative Scotland.
