Restored Living Apart Together to be Screened at the Glasgow Film Festival

Posted December 19, 2012 01:56 PM by Webmaster

Park CircusLong lost for years and in danger of disappearing forever, this debut directorial feature and charming 80s Scottish comedy from Charles Gormley (Heavenly Pursuits) has undergone an incredibly detailed digital restoration thanks to funding support from Creative Scotland, Channel 4/Film4 and Park Circus. The newly restored Living Apart Together will receive its world premiere at the Glasgow Film Festival in February 2013, thereafter being showcased in selected cinemas and non-theatrical venues around Scotland with a subsequent DVD release in March.

The restoration was based on the film's best possible elements allowing for a super 2K-resolution image. Working frame by frame, the result demonstrates a work of stunning quality with true High Definition detail throughout. Gormley's hidden classic can now be screened as never seen before.



Starring musician BA Robertson in one of only two on-screen roles as Ritchie Hannah a singer/songwriter returning to his mediocre life in Glasgow after the death of a friend Living Apart Together (1982) remains an important record of a culturally significant time in the city of Glasgow. The work is all the more interesting considering Gormley's background and first forays into filmmaking that saw him make council documentaries with fellow Glaswegian and acclaimed director Bill Forsyth (Gregory's Girl, Local Hero).

Ritchie's wife Evie (Barbara Kellerman), tired of the constant upheaval in her marriage, uses the opportunity to walk out, leaving him to care for their children. Ritchie goes in search of Evie with the help of his manager's assistant Alicia (Judi Trott), however, an attraction grows between the pair and as they widen their pursuit, it becomes apparent that Evie is not ready to return home.

Featuring original music from satirical post-punk musician BA Robertson and early appearances from Peter Capaldi and John Gordon Sinclair, Gormley's bittersweet take on relationships is a fresh and captivating insight into how our actions affect the people we love.

Looks like the restoration was all worth it - the excitement here is palpable. Settle down, guys - don't everyone try to pre-order it at once and crash Amazon's servers!
