Glasgow Film Festival
Margaret Tait and Joanna Margaret Paul: People and Places

Wed 28 February 2018

Presented on the occasion of Margaret Tait’s centenary, this special programme features a selection of short films by the pioneering Orcadian filmmaker and poet (1918–99) alongside works by New Zealand artist, Joanna Margaret Paul (1945–2003). Like Tait, Paul worked prolifically across the mediums of film, poetry and painting, portraying instances of everyday life from motherhood to the natural world. The programme is selected by curator and filmmaker Peter Todd and artist Kate Davis, and will be accompanied by readings of poetry by both Tait and Paul, and a discussion between Davis, Todd, Dr Sarah Neely (academic research and writer) and Nicole Yip (Director, LUX Scotland).
