On 26th February 2017, No Frame is an Island was shared with the world. It is a crowdsourced film produced by filmmakers across Scotland, and a creative response to Brexit.
With this project, we wanted to explore the idea that every frame in a film is defined by the one that comes before it and after it. Over 60 filmmakers created one-shot 30 second films that best captured their response to Brexit. Each response was then united to create this unique body of work, that was accompanied by music from a live string quartet.
In creating each response, filmmakers had to think instinctively about their personal reaction to Brexit. And now it’s time to think carefully about the future of the country.
