Glasgow Short Film Festival
Second Sight: Dreaming Rivers

Fri 20 March 2020

In association with LUX, the ICO’s 2020 national film tour Second Sight explores the legacy, methods, aesthetic strategies and histories of the UK’s Black Film Workshop Movement.

A key film of the movement, Martina Attille’s Dreaming Rivers (1988) illustrates the spirit of modern families touched by the experience of migration. Awarded a prestigious Filmdukaten at the XXXVII Internationale Filmwoche Mannheim in 1988, the film evocatively weaves together the ambition-fuelled dreams and memories of Caribbean-born Miss T and her family.

Dreaming Rivers will be screened alongside two films by Glasgow based artist, filmmaker and programmer, Tako Taal, who will also introduce the screening.
