‘before us stands yesterday’

This is a film about Haining castle. From the late 17c this castle was renamed as “Almond castle”. This film is a reminder that we may outlive labels or that labels may be outlived.

Today, Almond castle or Haining Castle (if you are a traditionalist) stands in an old industrial estate and brickworks with burnt out cars and rubbish as its landscape setting.

The quotes in this film are about the poet Ted Hughes. I was reminded of Hughes at the castle as the crows had made it there home. Crows often featured in Hughes work.

The music is “Exit Music” by Steven Lindsay
