Guest:  Jackie Kay

“I think that film is essentially a poetic medium, and although it can be put to all sorts of other (…) uses, these are secondary.” In celebration of the centenary of experimental Scottish filmmaker Margaret Tait, we explore the idea of film as poem. Poet Jackie Kay will discuss some of Tait’s beautiful short ‘film/poems’, including Portrait of Ga (1952), Aerial (1974), and Hugh MacDiarmid, A Portrait (1964).

Tickets:  £5 / £3 under 16
