Ten massive tower blocks once stood tall at Sighthill Estate Glasgow.
Built in the 1960's this iconic development was home to thousands of residents before a historic regeneration project swept through the estate demolishing all the High Rises over the past decade.
‘Sighthill’ tells the story of a handful of these residents who lived or frequented the almost empty remaining two blocks before demolition. New houses were being constructed in the shadow of the towers signalling the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the people who were determined to stay and help rebuild this once thriving community.
This is an intimate yet unflinching documentary exploring the final chapter of the old blocks and the beginning of a new era for the people of Sighthill.
