Film Troubadours: Scotland and Ukraine
The Coming of the 'Camerons'
The film follows the Glen Clova postwoman Jean Cameron on her rounds (on her bicycle) and documents the introduction of the ‘Camerons’ — uniform trousers for postwomen. They were named after this very same postwoman, who started the fashion after requesting trousers instead of the regulation skirt.
All films of the programme will be available for viewing by the festival audience on a free basis without geographical restrictions. During the festival, from March 27 to April 4, new films from the Scottish and Ukrainian selections will appear daily at 10 am, each of which can be viewed for 48 hours.
