While the images in the film reveal a landscape that often seems unchanged, the narrative reveals fragments of forgotten stories and traditions, skills and working lives no longer of value in today’s society. The Realm of Forgotten Existence is an experimental documentary on ageing in rural communities in Scottish - English border town Berwick-upon-Tweed, nearby areas and Lindisfarne Island, combining oral history interviews with archive material and new film footage.
