Currently seeking funding for:

'Orkney Tapestry', a unique collaboration of filmmaker Mark Jenkins and the people of Orkney, an intricate tapestry of image, prose, poetry and music taking viewers on a journey that encapsulates Orkney culture, heritage and way of life today.

Filmmaker and Orkney resident Mark Jenkins proposes to visit thirty locations – 17 islands and 13 parishes - sharing stories, making new ones and documenting with film and sound recordings.

The Festival of the Horse, island regattas and agricultural shows, ploughing matches and harvest homes, festivals, North Ronaldsay sheep punding, the Riding of the Marches. Portraits of individuals will support these events; the Ba’ maker and contestants, weavers, farmers, fishermen and craft makers. From above and below, the grandness of the islands’ landscapes will be contrasted with minutiae of flora and fauna.
