To See Ourselves + Q&A

The 2014 Scottish referendum for independence sparked a revival of political debate in streets and homes across the country.

To See Ourselves is an unexpected, deeply personal account of the referendum as seen through the eyes of a pregnant filmmaker, as she follows her idealist father's relentless activism and reveals the heart behind the politics during this historic crossroads for Scotland.

Filmed during the summer of 2014, Jane McAllister has collated first-hand footage of the build-up to the referendum and its aftermath, all while on the hoof, heavily pregnant and with no budget. Following her father Fraser, a fervent Yes campaigner, McAllister captured the energy, the friction and the endless debates of that fateful summer. Affectionate without being sentimental, it creates not just a valuable time capsule of a pivotal moment in Scotland's history, but a film which encourages empathy, self-reflection and open and constructive dialogue about the future.
