Eadar-Chluich (“Interlude”)

Posted on 17 September 2017

In 2009, Sorbier was nominated in the BAFTA Scotland Television Drama category for the fifth film in our six part “Eadar-Chluich” (“Interlude”) strand.

This exciting series of short, non-dialogue dramas based on individual songs broke new ground for Gaelic television. Six very diverse “mini dramas" were eventually produced, and brought together some of the finest drama talent in Scotland.

John Carmichael took on the task of sourcing, reversioning to English and pitching the songs to individual directors. Each director was then given free rein to interpret their version of the story in the song, to pictures. The absence of dialogue meant that the casting brief was wide, and tantalising. Our sensational casting director Orla O’ Connor pulled out all the stops ....the films feature stellar cast such as Iain Glen, Martin Compston, Kate Dickie, Alison Peebles and Greg McHugh.

The widely acclaimed Eadar-Chluich [ackage, was broadcast again in the summer of 2017.
