Premiere of a new work co-directed by filmmaker Morag McKinnon and composer Jim Sutherland. When Fish Begin To Crawl is a meditation on the climate crisis and humanity’s relationship with nature, embodying an urgent yet hopeful dialogue between art and science, spanning geological deep time and present-day eco-emergencies.


This triptych film's original score has been pre-recorded by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. The artists will be joined by Science Director of the Global Soil Health Programme, Professor John Crawford, University of Glasgow and the Scientific Director of Dynamic Earth, Hermione Cockburn for a post-screening Q&A.

LateLab is a collaboration between Edinburgh Science Festival and New Media Scotland. Supported by the Scottish Government's Festivals Expo Fund.
