Irish Doc Wins At Milano Festival
03 Oct 2007 :
Ciarin Scott’s ‘Michael Scott – A Changing Man’ has won the Best Editing award at the Milano Documentary Festival, which took place from the 12th-30th September in the Italian city. The award went to the film’s editor Lawrence Barraclough.

The festival featured international films covering the topics of dance, theatre, corporate cinematography, art, architecture, cinematography and music, with over 200 films shown during the three week event.

Scott’s 52 minute film offers a piece of Ireland's cultural history as well as giving an insight into a complex and visionary artist.

As one of Ireland’s prominent 20th-century architects, Michael Scott (1905-1989) is best known for bringing Modernism to Irish Architecture with Busáras, The Abbey Theatre, the CIE Bus Station in Donnybrook and Scott Hospital in Tullamore. However, Scott's modern outlook attracted controversy amongst mid-century Ireland's authoritarian, Catholic establishment.

Ciarín Scott traces her father's colourful life as he struggles with family pressures while fighting to bring visual modernity to the country he loved. Produced by Mary Finnegan, with cinematography by Steve O’Reilly and original music by Sam Kingsley.

‘Michael Scott – A Changing Man’ was shown as part of RTE’s Arts Lives series and is now available on DVD from art gallery and museum bookstores: The National Gallery, The Hugh Lane Gallery, IMMA, the Irish Film Institute and the RIAI.
