Whatever Gets You Through The Night: The Film (Paisley Arts Centre)

A screening of Dan Warren's film plus live music from Emma Pollock and Withered Hand

Fri 13 Sep 2013 | 7pm (film starts 7.30pm) | £8/£6

A stellar line-up of Scottish musicians, from Eugene Kelly and Emma Pollock to Withered Hand and Rachel Sermanni, feature in this beautiful collection of stories told in song, shot during the night in locations across the country – from Edinburgh’s Bongo Club to the Orkney Ferry. This is a snapshot of an entire nation at its most vulnerable and revealing, inspired by what takes place between the hours of midnight and 4am.

This film is part of the Whatever Gets You Through the Night project created by award-winning director Cora Bissett, acclaimed playwright David Greig and musicians Swimmer One. The screening will be followed by live sets from Emma Pollock and Withered Hand.

Following a sell out run at The Arches in 2012, Whatever Gets You Through the Night made its premiere as a multimedia theatre show/gig at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, to ecstatic audience and critical reviews.
