The Orcadian filmmaker Margaret Tait was a true pioneer of Scottish cinema and several recently rediscovered works have deepened our understanding of this extraordinary film talent. Even though many of Tait's films feature children as their subjects, she made the important distinction that these films were made 'for children, not too much about children'. This programme will look at four of Tait's films that focus on the child and/or the child's point of view: Happy Bees (1955), Orquil Burn (1955), and two of the rediscovered films, Splashing (1966) and All These New Relations (1953). Suitable for children of all ages, from five to ninety-five. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Short Film Festival.
