Are there any films made in Gàidhlig language?

Unread postby Polygot2017 » Wed Oct 25, 2017 12:39 pm

I was wondering, have there ever been any films made totally in Gàidhlig? I don't mean dubbed or subtitled, but ones where the actors spoke in Gàidhlig (or failing that, dubbed ones would be ok). I think it would be great to watch films in Gàidhlig. Where can I find them? Thanks.

I think Seachd is probably the closest.

Seachd is definitely a good pick, because you can choose your subtitle language or completely switch them off if you buy the DVD. Try watching it without subtitles first, then with Gaelic subtitles, then with English subtitles, That way you will learn the most.

If you don't mind watching soaps for the good of your Gaelic, you can find episodes of two soaps, Machair (older) and Bannan (recent and current) on YouTube.

There is also a Gaelic Short Film competition every year, FilmG (varying quality) - earlier entries here:

The films from the latest FilmG are now online, but entry numbers seem to be really low this year -- 13 in the open category in total, 6 of which are student films (in previous years you'd expect to get around 6 from the SMO media course alone). They're half and half documentary and comedy/drama. Oh well, makes the odds better for little ol' me, I suppose...

Well, the Gàidhlig (dubbed) version of "Song of the Sea", Oran na Mara, is showing on BBC Alba on Christmas Eve, but they have not made it available on DVD in Gàidhlig, which they did for "Secret of Kells", which also shows occasionally on BBC Alba.

Other programmes available to watch which have been translated, or dubbed are:

Siubhlachan, is a pilot episode of a children's programme that never took off, which occasionally plays on BBC Alba, but can be viewed at the link.
Saga Biorn Ùr - animation in Gàidhlig.
Faire Chaluim MhicLeoid - Canadian film in Gàidhlig.
An Cridhe Cabaireach - another Canadian film, being a Scottish Gaelic version of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart".

I think Comhairle Nan Leabhraichean still sells DVDs of An Gruffalo, and Leum Suas air an Sguaib, Gàidhlig versions of well known children's animations, which also are aired on BBC Alba from time to time.

Oh my God, they dubbed Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea in Gaelic??? Tapadh leibh!

Polyglot, here is the BBC iPlayer link to Song of the Sea in Gaelic: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b094f5h4 If you don't get BBC Alba you should be able to get it on the iPlayer after it's aired, since I see you're in the UK. :)

A Shìle, càite a bheil mi a lorg Secret of Kells ann an DVD? (Sa Ghàidhlig - tha an DVD agam fhathast sa Bheurla.) Choimhead mi Song of the Sea anns a' BhBC Alba an-diugh, ach chan eil mi a' lorg fiosrachadh air loidhne mu na eadar-theangachaidhean.

Cheannaich mi e bho Amazon nuair a bha ... it was first released. Scottish Gaelic was one of the options available on the DVD. I believe Comhairle Nan Leabraichean also sold copies. I wish they had done the same for "Òran na Mara", but this did not appear to be the case. Now, I just record the re-runs on BBC Alba, including today's showing of "Òran na Mara".

Sorry for the English, I can read Gaelic far better than I can compose it.

Huh, the Gaelic option isn't available on my DVD of Secret of Kells. At least, not on my Region 1 copy - I will have to track down my British one and see if it's any different.

"Às an Eilean" is a 1993 full-length Gaelic film. It's on Youtube.
