Islay Book Festival 2019: Film Screening: The Amber Light

Ramsay Hall, Isle of Islay, PA42 7BY
Sat 31st August 2019
Award-winning whisky writer Dave Broom and his film director collaborator Adam Park bring their documentary “The Amber Light” to Islay Book Festival this year, fresh from its world premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. The film explores the untold story of whisky, past and present, and how it intertwines with Scottish culture: art, music, literature and food. Featuring music from the likes of King Creosote, and interviews with whisky-loving authors Ian Rankin and Alasdair Gray, Dave also speaks to the key innovators and thinkers in the whisky world – farmers, distillers, bar owners, historians – and explores the unsung role of women in distilling and blending over the centuries.
