The origins of a homegrown Scottish cinema can be traced back to
filmmaker Bill Douglas, who directed this trio of brilliant
semiautobiographical films about his brutal childhood in an
impoverished mining town in the Highlands. My Childhood (1972, 46
mins.), introduces Douglas' analogue, Jaime (Stephen Archibald),
focusing on the boy's relationship with a German POW during the
last days of WWII. In My Ain Folk (1973, 55 mins.), we find Jaime
living with his grandmother before being forced into an orphanage.
Lastly, My Way Home (1978, 64 mins.) presents an older Jaime during
his years of service in the Royal Air Force. For each of the three
films presented here, Douglas won awards from the Berlin Film
Festival's Forum of New Cinema, including the FIPRESCI in 1979.
