Launch! On The Sea With Scotland’s Lifeboats dives into archive footage of RNLI crews, with an immersive soundtrack from some of the UK’s most exciting contemporary musicians.

Directed by award-winning curator Shona Thomson, the film has been two years in the making with unprecedented access to the RNLI’s own archives. 1920s film is woven with 1960s colour promos and breath-taking digital video captured by RNLI crews’ 21st century helmet cameras whilst out on the wild sea.

Launch! celebrates the dedication of Scotland’s volunteer crews and the communities that support them including a glimpse of Stornoway.

An Lanntair Cinema is screening Launch! as a fundraising event and proceeds from the event will be donated to Stornoway RNLI.

Directed by: Shona Thomson
