A poet, filmmaker, and artist of unique and extraordinary vision, Margaret Tait died in 1999, aged eighty. Inspired by her, Glasgow Film Festival sent emerging moving image artist, Sarah Forrest, to Margaret’s native Orkney for 6 weeks on a Creative Futures Residency. Join us for the festival’s exclusive screening of the resulting work.
Alongside this we will show the GWL Documentary Margaret Tait, Film Poet, by Marissa Keating and Michael Thomas Jones about the intensely private, enigmatic filmmaker told through her friends, family and peers.
