Hundreds of people from across Scotland have come together to make a film that captures the essence of the country.

We Are Northern Lights, which had its world premiere at the Glasgow Film Festival, is the brainchild of award winning Scottish filmmaker, Nick Higgins, an academic in Media, Culture and Practice at the University of Edinburgh

The film, which is Scotland’s first mass participation documentary, will be showcased during a tour of major cities in Scotland this month.
