Glimpses from a Visit to Orkney in Summer 1995

Poet and filmmaker Margaret Tait was born on Orkney in 1918. 75 years later, Ute Aurand visited her on the island, the geographical and spiritual center of Tait’s work, to watch some of her 16mm works and try to make a film together. The remains of their encounter add up to a beautiful rush of Bolex glimpses typical of Aurand’s cinema. It’s a hymn to life and colors, nature and cinema. “The thing about poetry is you have to keep doing it“, wrote Tait, and Aurand followed her. (Patrick Holzapfel)
