hagid’s motorbikes, a tale of a young girl and her mysterious brother, will be re-imagined by film-maker Richard Thomas as part of the UK-wide National Film Festival.
“I’ve always loved the way a film can open your eyes to the past, and hagids is the perfect example of that,” said the director of The Long Walk to Freedom, who has also directed The Haunting and The Invisible.
“It’s a very dark, gothic story about two little brothers, and it’s about two very dark people.”
Thomas will direct the film in a way that he says is similar to the way he works in the film business, by putting together a narrative that is all about a ghost story.
The two brothers are named hagidan and hagar.
Hagidan was a farmer in the nearby village of Stirling, when his brother Harag came along and started to steal all the crops, leaving him in a terrible financial situation.
His brother died before he could save the farm, and Harag was left with the land.
Thomas has used traditional storytelling to tell the story of a family who live in isolation and are trying to escape the world they’ve built.
“The hagiden brothers are sort of the other side of the coin, in a sense,” he told The Independent.
“They are sort in the same boat, and they’re not quite in the exact same position.
So they’re kind of on different planes.
They’re not really quite the same person.
But they’re really trying to make it work.
And they have the confidence that the rest of the world will have a similar kind of confidence.” “
So the idea that they’re a sort of ‘good people’ and they can somehow save their village from their own actions is something that’s very important to them.
And they have the confidence that the rest of the world will have a similar kind of confidence.”
The film will also tell the tale of hagis father, a priest who, at the age of 78, is unable to find the help he needs for his dementia.
“He’s not an able-bodied man.
He’s a spiritual man.
And he doesn’t want to die, because he doesn to know what would happen if he did,” said Thomas.
“And he’s just in a really sad state of mind, which is not the way most people would be in their 70s, 80s, 90s.
He wants to die.
And the story about his death is very personal, because I think we’ve got a lot of really interesting, real, emotional moments in this film that people can relate to.” “
But he’s also a very kind, caring father.
And the story about his death is very personal, because I think we’ve got a lot of really interesting, real, emotional moments in this film that people can relate to.”
The National Film Council (NFC) has also commissioned a documentary, titled The Ghosts of Stirlingsville, to tell a similar story.
“There’s a story that’s sort of woven through the story that we tell about the village, about the family that’s in Stirling,” said Sarah Tulloch, the chief executive of the council.
“We have this incredible, fascinating story that the village tells about itself.
And it’s really important to tell that story and have people come to Stirling and hear the story and come to the village and see what we’ve been doing.”
The two films will be shown in the festival’s run-up to the centenary of the Stirling Festival in October.
“Richard Thomas is one of the most important directors of the 20th century and his films tell really great stories,” said Simon Green, who heads the festival, adding: “Richard’s stories are deeply rooted in the past and have a lot to say about the future.
And his work is about the relationship between the individual and the world around them.”
The festival is due to run from November 1 to 8, 2018, with films from the previous year also being shown.
