We know Welsh has been translated into many languages. Today I was helping a Dutch film company to connect Trainspotting the film with the location. They’re doing Gomorrah in Naples, Leaving Las Vegas in, well, Las Vegas, and several others. The wee problem, as we locals know, is that not one frame of the film is shot in Leith, and only the opening 30 seconds (repeated) is shot in Edinburgh. However, they were interested in getting some shots of Leith, and tomorrow they are due to see some of the film-makers in Glasgow. It should be broadcast in the New Year, and I’ll post a link.
Meantime, the tours go on, with a steady stream of visitors and the occasional journo. Looks like the media world is gearing up for the twentieth annivesary of the release of Trainspotting the book in August next year.
