A spoken word film written and performed by Victoria McNulty
Any modern city will have hundreds of histories intertwined at any given time.
These histories are dominated by who has the voice to speak.
Glasgow during the Iraq War. A young couple fighting for their lives in a city riven by poverty, gentrification, boredom and sin.
Through nostalgic storytelling and historical observations, Exiles dissects ways in which history shapes our past and predetermines our future, with often devastating consequences.
Victoria McNulty's evocative performance is intertwined with specially filmed segments to transform this story for a digital audience.
"An overdue dose of social reality" Darren McGarvey
"Like the city of Glasgow itself, Exiles is political, unflinching and tender" Matt Abbott
"An important and powerful piece of poetry" Paisley Book Festival 2021
Raised in the East End of Glasgow, Victoria McNulty is a celebrated voice in Scottish spoken word. Her work illuminates facets of working-class life often neglected by contemporary performance art.
Exiles is directed by acclaimed spoken word artist Kevin P. Gilday and award-winning film-maker David Hayman Jr.
Music by singer-songwriter Calum Baird.
Produced by Stephen Wright at Fair Pley.
