Margaret Tait died April 16th 1999, aged 80. She was an intensely private person with a unique vision, firmly rooted in her native Orkney.

Glasgow Women’s Library, working with filmmakers Marissa Keating and Michael Jones, went on a journey to document the story of this elusive filmmaker and poet through her friends, family, and peers.

This is just a taster of the wonderful words and images that were gathered on the journey. The full documentary will be screened at The CCA as part of the Glasgow Women's Library Margaret Tait: Film Poems event on Saturday 4th August.
