"Sunset Song" Filming in 65mm

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: - Date: 30.04.2014
Synopsis by theirisgroup.eu

Set in the early 20th century, Chris Guthrie, a farmer’s daughter in north-eastern Scotland struggles for love amid hardship and family misfortune. After her mother, a poverty-stricken woman broken by repeated childbirths, poisons herself and her baby twins the resilient young Chris must manage the farm in her absence. When her father has a stroke and becomes bedridden, though also eager for an incestuous relationship, she is left on the land by her closest ally and friend, her brother. Finally she finds love, only to wave her new husband off to the Great War. She remains on the farm, connected to a land about to be changed forever by the onset of technology and war.

Distribution: Fortissimo


Director Terence Davies has begun principal photography in Scotland on Sunset Song, a film adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s 1932 classic novel. The feature, produced by Hurricane Films, IRIS Productions and SellOutPictures, stars Agyness Deyn, Peter Mullan and Kevin Guthrie. Fortissimo Films is handling the international distribution rights for the film. To capture the landscape, the filmmakers have chosen to shoot on 65mm film, a creative decision that the producers say “will ensure depth, clarity and emotional impact on the screen”.


Terence Davies Begins Rolling 65mm Cameras on Peter Mullan-Led ‘Sunset Song’. Here’s one that got started a bit under the radar: Terence Davies is reported — first by the Hurricane Films Twitter account, then through ScreenDaily — to be in New Zealand for the production of his next feature, Sunset Song, which pairs the English legend (most recently of The Deep Blue Sea) with Peter Mullan, Agyness Deyn (the Pusher remake), and Kevin Guthrie (Sunshine on Leith). Let it be relayed, first and foremost, that Hurricane Films’s tweet proudly promoted use of the Arri 65, a 65mm-film camera that is expected to “ensure depth, clarity and emotional impact on the screen” — regardless of how apparent these may have already been in the man’s past efforts.

ARRI Rental:

SUNSET SONG - Michael McDonough, ASC, combines the ALEXA XT and ARRI/ZEISS Master Anamorphic lenses with the ARRIFLEX 765 65mm film camera on Terence Davies' epic new film.

Based on the 1932 novel by Lewis Grassic Gibbon, Sunset Song tells the story of Chris Guthrie, a young woman growing up in rural north-east Scotland during the early years of the 20th century. Adapted for the screen and directed by Terence Davies, whose previous credits include Distant Voices, Still Lives and The Deep Blue Sea, it was shot by cinematographer Michael McDonough, ASC, known for his work on Winter's Bone, Albert Nobbs and Starred Up. With support and equipment from the ARRI Rental Group, Sunset Song utilized an ARRIFLEX 765 to shoot exteriors on 65mm film, and an ALEXA XT Studio with ARRI/ZEISS Master Anamorphic lenses to capture studio scenes in ARRIRAW. McDonough recently spoke with ARRI Rental about his experiences combining these two high-quality formats on one shoot.
