Sinopsis: From Limelight to Satellite looks at the moving picture in Scotland. Written in celebration and despair, hope and searching pessimism, it draws upon the expertise of some of Scotland's foremost exponents of film. It moves from the optimistic amateurism of 1913's "Mairi, the Romance of a Highland Maiden" through the austere realism of "Children of the City" in 1944 to the stylish brutality and lingering charm of today's films.
With its incisive essays, numerous stills and a unique Scottish feature film listing, "From Limelight to Satellite" is essential reading for everyone interested in the delights and difficulties of making and understanding movies.

Descripción British Film Institute, 1990. Soft cover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. P/B 256 pages, condition is very good. Foreword Scotland has made many distinguished and lasting contributions to the culture of the United Kingdom. Her poets and novelists, painters and musicians are justly renowned throughout Europe. Yet sadly, the major impact Scotland has had on the moving image - certainly no less distinguished and equally lasting - has failed somehow to achieve the international recognition it so richly deserves. One need only think of the superb documentary tradition, the immensely popular feature films of recent years and the inventiveness and skill which individual Scots have brought to the film industry over many decades to realise that a new view, a new appreciation, is indeed long overdue. From Limelight to Satellite provides that new view by bringing together and examining in depth some of the most enduring and significant aspects of Scottish cinema. The film makers and broadcasters, journalists and critics, academics and researchers who are gathered in these pages represent contemporary opinion at its best and most informed. Never before has there been such a wide ranging Scottish film publication, so carefully put together, so profusely illustrated. The book has come into being through collaboration between the British Film Institute and the newly independent Scottish Film Council. It is a partnership which, as Chairman of the BFI's Board.of Governors and an 'honorary Scot' by virtue of my new island home, I find both welcome and gratifying. From Limelight to Satellite will, I feel sure, give enormous pleasure, providing much food for thought, not just in Scotland but wherever it is read. Its profundity and the discussion it will undoubtedly provoke should contribute immeasurably to the further development of Scottish film and help elevate this long underrated but crucial element in the country's artistic heritage to its full and deserved status in the cinema of the new Europe.
