Beyond the Haar is both a visual poem and an eulogy to the city of Aberdeen. A response to memory, reflection and the experience of transforming sense of place as the skyline changes and time takes its toll.
Using a mix of archive and new footage shot on DSLR with vintage lens, the film reveals the hidden side to a city often misaligned as insular and unwelcoming.
