SKU: 871261M Category:


A new documentary about a ground breaking Scottish artist.

Margaret Tait was a fearless independent artist working across film, art and poetry.

This documentary about the Scottish artist, perhaps best known in film circles for her 1952 short film ‘A Portrait of Ga’, draws heavily on Tait’s archives in an attempt to resurrect one of her unfinished films and explore the Orkney locale from which she emerged.

Plus Q&A: We will be joined by Sarah Neely, Professor of Film and Visual Culture, University of Glasgow to talk about the film and Margaret Tait’s legacy.
