MARCH documents the large scale, public art event March of Women taking to the streets of Bridgeton on the eve of International Women’s Day 2015.
Through a series of interviews with a wide variety of women taking part in the performance and march, the film considers the gap 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, librarians and politicians, as they work together towards the final event on March 7th 2015. 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.
MARCH is now available on DVD exclusively from Glasgow Women’s Library for just £5 plus P&P.
