About the event

To See Ourselves is an observational, deeply personal account of the 2014 Scottish independence

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


Affectionate without being sentimental, To See Ourselves 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.

One of the most granular depictions of modern Scottish life I have ever seen

Pat Kane / Writer, Musician

There aren’t any other films that chronicle in such intimacy, humour and depth one of the

most seismic moments in recent Scottish social and political history.

Geoffrey McNab / Film Critic

…it is nice to be reminded that people can be passionate about politics and still be largely

civil to each other

Lukanyo Mnyanda / Financial Times

“Amazing, beautiful, emotional and truthful”

Audience member / Dundee Arts Centre
