Directed by North Merchiston is a series of five short films, which were made with collaboration of five residents of North Merchiston Care Home in Edinburgh. Led by professional filmmaker and director Duncan Cowles, each resident was encouraged to take control of the filmmaking process.
Directed by North Merchiston was commissioned by Luminate in association with Scottish Care for the Luminate festival in 2016.
