Set in Glasgow during the mid-seventies, Ratcatcher explores the experiences of a young boy as he struggles to reconcile his dreams and his guilt with the abjection that surrounds him. A short film will be shown before Ratcatcher.

He is currently working in creative partnership with sound/performance artist Vicky Langan.
