Dir Margaret Tait
With Celia Imrie, Gerda Stevenson, Jack Shepherd
This haunting and magical film moves between Edinburgh and Orkney as it tells of a woman’s attempts to come to terms with her mother’s death through her childhood memories. Filled with flashbacks and dream sequences, it’s also a film about islanders’ relationship with the ever-present sea. Tait’s only feature-length film, from her own screenplay, was produced by the BFI and is the first Scottish feature film directed by a woman.
