Second Sight (2009) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary Second Sight.
This cinematic, non-fiction ghost story follows Donald Angus MacLean, one of the last of a generation raised with the Gaelic oral tradition rather than electricity and television. “Don Angie” is an old charmer, a man of the church who has listened with an open and curious mind to a lot of “terribly strange stories” throughout his long life. The camera roves with him through the rugged vermillion landscapes of Scotland’s remote Isle of Skye; from gorgeously shot craggy hillsides to the sites of spine-tingling stories of spectres, ghost cars, death foretold and the “second sight.” This softly painted portrait of a vanishing era spins an irresistible tale that becomes a moving study of life and mortality.
