Abstract

Much of Colin McArthur’s work (most notably the seminal Scotch Reels [BFI, 1982]) can be understood as series of manifestos arguing for a local, culturally engaged Scottish cinema that throws off the incessant drive to compete with Hollywood. If Scotch Reels lambastes the reliance of tartanry and kailyard as defining and self-colonizing representations of Scotland, “In Praise of a Poor Cinema” aims its sights at Scottish funding agencies’ own self-colonizing tendencies in the search for capital.
