Dummy Jim

A gentle nudge from Jim himself has reminded me that I was going to tell you about Dummy Jim. This is a mooted feature film by Edinburgh-based filmmaker Matt Hulse, who regular Flatpack-goers may remember from his all-envelopingĀ Audible Picture Show and the mysterious Harrachov Exchange. The film is based on the journals of James Duthie, a profoundly deaf Scotsman who cycled to the Arctic Circle in 1951, and this snazzy online portfolio includes a wealth of gubbins relating to his tale including cine footage, thought-provoking homilies ('Never let your sorrows rise higher than your knees') and cake recipes. There are also details on how you can contribute to the production yourself.
