In a new departure for Bella, we present a filmpoem, ‘Sullom’ by Roseanne Watt. Roseanne is a young poet and film-maker from Shetland. She says:
This filmpoem was completed as part of my university MLitt project, ‘Maps and Alignment’, which explored ideas surrounding the connection of self and place. This piece charts my own feelings on growing up during Shetland’s ‘golden era’ of oil, and its almost visceral presence in the landscape of my home and life there.
