Lost in France - sitting on a rock

Director/writer: Niall McCann

Production Companies: Edge City Films, Still Films
Distribution: Curzon Artifical Eye

In Glasgow in the mid-1990s, flourishing indie rock band The Delgados established cult record label Chemikal Underground, heralding a renaissance of independent music in the city that would bring the likes of Mogwai, Arab Strap and Franz Ferdinand to the world.

Lost in France is an exhilarating new documentary exploring the rise of this Glaswegian music scene, revisiting a defining, chaotic trip to France in the musicians’ early careers. Featuring a stunning mix of live performances and frequently hilarious interviews, the film reunites key label personnel in an intimate exploration of friendship, memory and making music.
