“West is a landscape of loss. West is where the light dies” – Jim Perrin. ‘The Western Lands: Hoy’ is one episode in a proposed 12 episode feature film: a poetic documentary based on the life of acclaimed rock climber and award winning writer Jim Perrin. A wild and tragic story of love loss and landscape is here told around Perrin's attempted 60th birthday climb of the Old Man of Hoy in Orkney.
