Govan Young, a documentary film about medieval Govan, continued its run on the international film festival circuit with a screening at the Kinemastik Short Film Festival in Malta.

The film follows a group of local schoolchildren from Govan’s Pirie Park Primary as, aided by Professor Stephen Driscoll, an historical archaeologist at the University of Glasgow, they learn the rarely-told story of the Viking invasion of central Scotland and the subsequent establishment of the medieval kingdom of Strathclyde, which had its spiritual centre in Govan.

Dr David Archibald of the University’s School of Culture and Creative Arts co-directed and produced the film along with Martin Clark and Cara Connolly from local production company, Connolly Clark Films.

Keep an eye out for screenings closer to home coming soon.
