About this event

Award winning Scottish documentary maker David Graham Scott joins us to discuss his work and his first hand experiences of psychedelic healing. Iboga Nights https://vimeo.com/130630278 MORE... David Graham Scott is one of the most remarkable documentary makers in Scotland. Over the years he has built up a wide body of work, dealing with subjects ranging from a trainee hangman who lost his job with the abolition of capital punishment (Hanging with Frank) to the day to day routine of junkies in Glasgow's west end in obtaining cash for their next fix (Little Criminals). In the process he has put himself into some crazy situations, from becoming the Digger's court photographer and having to chase alleged paedophiles to make a documentary on the infamous newspaper (The Dirty Digger), getting himself addicted to heroin when getting too close to his subjects (Little Criminals), and taking a life-thereatening hallucinogen to get off of heroin (the award-winning Detox or Die). For his new film, End of the Game, Scott, a committed vegan, took an ageing eccentric from Caithness to Africa for his last big game shoot. While Scott's films have proven controversial, they are never sensationalistic. The films display a rare empathy for their subjects, and are serious explorations of subjects that others often shy away from. Tonight's Independence Live interview is certain to be an interesting one.
