Being in a Place – A Portrait of Margaret Tait

Drawing on a wealth of unseen archival material and unpublished notebooks, the film weaves a complex and personal portrait of Margaret Tait’s life, from the perspective of a fellow artist sensitive to the potential she envisaged for film as a poetic medium. At the centre of the work is an unrealised script for a feature film discovered amongst Margaret’s documents in Orkney titled, Heartlandscape: Being in a place – a document of a landscape, and, in Tait’s words, the ‘intimations of ephemerality’ to be found there.
