Synopsis

In 1947 the Edinburgh International Festival brought together artists and audiences to look to the future, mend bridges, and to encourage a new exchange of ideas and culture which was both profoundly international and rooted in the city of Edinburgh.

This film weaves together rare archive footage with interviews, conducted by Sir Jonathan Mills, with Festival directors, artists and audience members. It traces the story of the International Festival over seven decades of profound social, cultural and political change in Scotland and across the world.
