Being in a Place: Folk Film Gathering


(Thu 29 June: 7pm)

An evocative, poetic tribute to the filmmaker Margaret Tait and the distinctive landscapes of Orkney in which she lived, Luke Fowler's film is a remarkable exploration of place and belonging. Join the Folk Film Gathering for a special screening of the film featuring musical responses from experimental musician Bell Lungs and Orcadian artist and musician Sarah McFadyen.

Curated by Transgressive North, the Folk Film Gathering is the world’s first folk film festival, screening films that celebrate the lived experiences of communities worldwide. Each annual edition explores the relationships between cinema and other traditional arts (such as oral storytelling and folk song), discovering what a folk cinema has been at moments throughout world film history, and how it may look in the future.
