Heart of Hawick, Hawick
Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival are delighted to welcome writer/actor/director Gerda Stevenson to give a talk in conjunction with Margaret Tait’s centenary. The talk, Quiet Defiance, reflects on her work with Tait on Blue Black Permanent (1992), Tait’s multi-faceted creativity, and her influence on the younger generation; includes excerpts from Tait’s films.
Stevenson will also be joining the Film Walk, responding to Tait’s Orquil Burn (1955) with a new poem specially commissioned by Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival.
