Where You’re
Meant To Be

Paul Fegan / Aidan Moffat
Tuesday 16 August 2016
The Hub

A special screening of award-winning film maker Paul Fegan’s movie Where You’re Meant To Be, starring former Arab Strap frontman Aidan Moffat, followed by a live set from Moffat himself.

Scottish cult-pop raconteur Aidan Moffat, best known for his no-holds-barred insights into sex, drugs and male anxiety, sets out to explore his country’s past by rewriting and touring some of its oldest songs to some of Scotland’s remotest locations.

It’s meant to be a tour that allows Moffat to explore the roots of his country. And to celebrate Scotland’s communities and lore. But then he meets Sheila Stewart, a 79-yearold travelling balladeer, whose life, and unexpected death, upturn Moffat’s musical world.

Moffat calls the movie Where You’re Meant To Be ‘a funny wee film about music and death’. He follows it with a live set of his uncompromisingly honest takes on drinking, domesticity and encroaching age, showing his uniquely candid angle on 21st-century life.


Succinct, entertaining and - at times - hopelessly moving, it sticks expertly to its task. 8/10

With its mix of dark melancholy and bawdy humour, its grime and its visual magnificence, Where You’re Meant to Be feels like a celebration of the real Scotland, in all its messy, joyful chaos…
