This year marks the centenary of Scottish film-maker and poet Margaret Tait’s birth. To mark the occasion, Towner will screen a brand-new restoration of Blue Black Permanent. The film was shot on location and moves fluidly between Edinburgh and Tait’s home of the Orkney Islands. It stars Celia Imrie as Barbara, a woman attempting to come to terms with her mother’s death, through her childhood memories. Margaret Tait referred to her own work as ‘film-poems’ and Blue Black Permanent is no exception: a haunting and magical film, filled with flashbacks and dream sequences.
