Cowal Cinema Club invites you to an come and enjoy an archive programme from the National Library of Scotland, presented and curated by Ruth Washbrook.

This programme of short films from Scotland’s Moving Image Archive celebrates women’s achievements and pioneering spirit. From suffragette surgeons and nurses, intrepid Highland postwomen and arctic dog-sled journeys to keep-fit exercises for the correct posture. Also featured are films made by renowned Scottish filmmakers, Margaret Tait and Jenny Gilbertson and a glimpse into women film technicians at work. 

Come and experience women’s contribution to Scottish history with some remarkable achievements. Join us for a blether afterwards about the women who have inspired you. The event is free, although a suggested donation of £3 would be most welcome.

This project has been organised by Screen Argyll and supported by the BFI Film Audience Network as part of Changing Times: Women’s Histories.
