The Silver Darlings is a new short film by Alastair Cook featuring an original soundtrack by Italian composer Luca Nasciuti, commissioned for Alastair's exhibition Sutherland | Caithness, held from 5th February 2010 until 21st March 2010 at the Timespan Gallery in Helmsdale, Sutherland

Taking its name from the eponymous book by Neil M. Gunn, The Silver Darlings follows a route from deep within the land out toward the coast, evoking the Clearance and reflecting on the land, heritage and people moved from the Strath of Kildonan to the planned villages of Golspie, Brora and Helmsdale. An emotive subject, the swell of Luca’s music carries the viewer on the journey toward the sea.
