Alasdair Gray: A Life in Progress

Kevin Cameron’s feature-length portrait of Alasdair Gray is as entertaining and multi-faceted as the man himself. It offers a colourful mosaic of fresh interviews, vintage archive footage and opportunities to view Gray at work as he creates massive murals and sculpts tightly formed essays. It even allows Gray to assume the role of a dapper, smooth-cheeked, smart-suited inquisitor to interview himself. Who better? What emerges is affectionate and playful with a good deal of attention focused on the long road to Lanark, as well as perceptive comments from Gray’s sister Mora Rolley and Liz Lochhead on how Gray changed how Glasgow thinks of itself.
