    Six Missouri-based poets speak about poetry, how it's made, its importance and benefits to readers. The poets also read excerpts from their poems inside scenes lifted from the poems. In the end, poets survive civilizations and poetry slows life down so people and reality can be appreciated.

      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.

          In 2007 we worked with students at Archbishop Michael Ramsey School [now St Michael & All Angels Academy] in South London to explore their environment through filmmaking. The project took place amidst an over-hanging sense of grief as a Yr10 student had recently been shot dead at home. On completion the students were passionate that as many people as possible should see the film to counteract all the negative press the area had been receiving. As part of the murder investigation the school had been featured on Crimestoppers. One girl said, 'they should show this film on Crimestoppers so people can see we're not all bad here. We can do good work' The work they produced - poetry, free-running, interviews with local people, environmental research - was good. The film is testament to that with it's moving and powerful messages. There is a sense of fear and a plea for peace from a group of young voices that are rarely heard.
