March – A Glasgow Women’s Library and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Film
22nd September, 2015 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
March documents the large scale, public art event March of Women spilling out onto the streets of Bridgeton on the eve of International Women’s Day 2015. Taking Cicely Hamilton’s popular suffragette play A Pageant of Great Women as a starting point, the diverse community of women in Glasgow in 2015 is brought to the screen, celebrating the lives and achievements of Scotland’.
Premiere Screening of March on Tuesday 22nd September from 6pm
This premiere screening marks the Library’s 24th Birthday and is the first chance to see March. Through a series of interviews with a wide variety of women taking part in the performance and march, the film considers the gaps in documenting women’s history, and points to the resounding importance of having a female generation to both honour and draw inspiration from. It follows the process of the play’s development within a community of Scottish women from boat builders to students, from librarians to politicians, as they work together towards the final event. The film gives a lingering insight into some of the political and social experiences of women in Scotland today, and invites testament to the tremendous power of a collective voice and the surprising resonance of a play written over a century ago with our contemporary society.
