Mining Poems or Odes

Mining Poems or Odes, a short documentary made by Glasgow based filmmaker Callum Rice.

Mining Poems or Odes celebrates the poetry and process of Robert Fullerton, a former shipyard welder, who credits his time welding as crucially influential on his writing practice today. A moving and compelling retrospective that draws imaginative parallels between the solitary and reflective existence of being both a miner of metals and words.

It has been selected to screen in competition at Sundance Film Festival 2016, USA. This is Rice's first film and follows recent success at the Scottish BAFTAS in November, where the film picked up the award for Best Short Film.
