'Mountain' Is The Closing Film At Glasgow Blueprint
November 21, 2018
Mountain is to be screened at the Glasgow Film Theatre as part of the Blueprint programme curated by Hans Lucas on 13 December. This marks Mountain's first public showing in it's hometown Glasgow. Fresh from his'Best Editor' win at Dublin Independent Film Festival, Chris Quick will join other filmmakers of the night to take part in a Q&A. Mountain has been selected as the final film of the night and caps 2018 for Blueprint.
The film was described by Lucas as "Jaw dropping" on first viewing and aligns neatly with Blueprints' m.o. of exhibiting films made on low budgets, independent of external funding.
We're honoured to have been invited along for the night; Hans Lucas is doing unparalleled work for the film scene in Glasgow and Blueprint is an essential night in the calendar.
With an impressive record of sell out screenings, the quarterly programme celebrating the DIY heroes of Scottish filmmaking returns. This edition includes new work from producer Chris Quick, whose film Mountain recently premiered at Portobello Film Festival. Ross Woodhead aka exit-omni presents an emotionally complex narrative work, and Goldbrick is a 1970s pastiche about the struggle to make independent action cinema. Presented with the continued support of 24-7 Scotland (formerly Visual Impact).
Mountain follows a trio of U.S. soldiers who fight for survival after being trapped behind enemy lines during World War II.
Wam Siluka Jr, Craig Young and Jam Morrison star in the pic produced and edited by Chris Quick. Electric Faces cinematographer Darren Eggenschwiler shot the film on Black Magic Cinema cameras. Mountain features an original score by Oliver Lodge, make up by Harley Moore and digital effects by Graeme Watt of 8 Acre Films.
