The Emerson is a thriving arts and community center located a block from historic downtown Bozeman. The building was originally an elementary school built in 1918, attended by thousands of Bozeman youth before its closure in 1991. With the building facing demolition in 1992, a grassroots coalition of community members dedicated to historic preservation and celebration of the arts formed a non-profit board, raised funds, and bought the building from the City of Bozeman.

Scrappy Scottish teenager Gemma has never backed down from a fight. That’s the way of life in her small-town, low-income housing scheme southeast of Glasgow. A place where you “either get knocked up or locked up,” there’s been nothing to do there since the local steelworks closed in the 1980s. An intimate portrait of a fading town, and of a young woman’s coming-of-age in a place scarred by society’s broken promises, “Scheme Birds” captures Gemma’s tenacity and determination as she struggles to rise above her surroundings in this absorbing story of survival.
