The locally filmed short film “Whistle My Lad” is to continue its film tour by being screened in Aden Country Park on Wednesday, October 15, at 2pm in the Aden Theatre.

Along with the screening, the audience will have a chance to see a short feature on the making of the film and take part in a unique Question and Answer session with members of the film production team.

Written by Richard Burke, the film is set in 1911 and tells the story of a fisherman’s daughter who falls in love with Fraser, the son of a rival skipper.

All contact between the two young lovers is forbidden by the feuding fathers but, with defiance and unerring love, the pair decide to run away from their repressive village life.

Will their actions lead to freedom or will the brewing storm end their love?

Neil Shirran, Aden Development Worker said: “We’re delighted to have screen Whistle My Lad as part of the new Aden Cinema initiative.

“We’ve already shown another locally shot film “Dummy Jim” to packed audiences so we hope Whistle My Lad has the same appeal.

“Having been filmed mainly on the Banffshire coastline it will be fun spotting the various film locations as we watch the film”.

The Whistle My Lad film has a suggested Certificate of 12A and the screening is free, with seating on a first come first served basis.
