"A more intimate and emotive art that evokes fragility, pain and trauma."
A thriving arts environment in a place you wouldn't expect; an artistically written article by Robert Draper for National Geographic. "In this chaotic capital, art is one way to survive."
...a Glasgow-based short film with the National Film and Television School.
