Outwith Presents: Lynne Ramsay’s ‘Ratcatcher’
Wednesday 16th October, 6pm-8.15pm (film starts 6.15pm); 14 Albert Road
‘Ratcatcher’ And Other Shorts, dir. Lynne Ramsay
Rising from our Dear Green home to collaborate with the likes of Tilda Swinton, Joaquin Phoenix and now, reportedly, Captain Ahab in a sci-fi adaptation of Moby Dick, Lynne Ramsay is one of Glasgow’s finest film exports, and ‘Ratcatcher’ is her powerful 1999 debut feature. It focuses on the troubled adolescence of a guilt-ridden, working-class upbringing in 1970s Glasgow during the garbage strikes that set loose a plague of rodents across urban Scotland.
As well as projecting this Criterion Collection restoration, beforehand we will be showcasing some of Ramsay’s earliest available work. We’ll screen three shorts: ‘Small Deaths’, ‘Kill The Day’ and ‘Gasman’ – the first and second were winners of the Jury Prize at the Cannes while the third took the Clermont Ferrand jury prize.
