Total runtime 120min

This programmes includes Three Portrait Sketches (1951), The Leaden Echo and the Golden Echo (1955) – Tait’s reading of Gerard Manley Hopkins’ poem set to her images, and Hugh MacDiarmid – A Portrait (1964). We also screen A Portrait of Ga (1952), a stunning film about Tait’s mother, and Colour Poems (1974), a poem started in words and finished in images. Plus Where I Am Is Here (1964), which shows the winter streets of Edinburgh – a beautiful contrast with Tait’s elemental masterpiece Aerial (1974).
