The Documentary

The darkly comic story of the Nessie hunters who camped out on the shores of Loch Ness throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Featuring an international cast of dedicated scientists and extraordinary eccentrics who chased, but never found, the dinosaur-like creature who may live in the depths of the loch. The film shows how the absence of concrete evidence and the allure of fame gradually tainted the once-serene Loch with frustration, egos, and broken dreams.

Q&A with the director John MacClaverty

This is your golden opportunity to engage in a conversation with the esteemed director John MacClaverty regarding the inception of the film, delving into his beliefs on the monster, and gaining insight into his forthcoming endeavours.
