LUX Scotland presents a selection of innovative and experimental work by previous Margaret Tait Award recipients, including Sarah Forrest, Stephen Sutcliffe and recent Turner Prize nominee Charlotte Prodger. Shot across the Highlands of Scotland, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Barbados, the works in this programme share a connection to the landscape, whether as a site for observation, reflection or interrogation. The programme will be presented by LUX Scotland Director Nicole Yip and takes its title from a line of prose written by Tait in her 1959 poem, The Scale of Things.

There’s a whole country at the foot of the stone.
If you care to look.

The Margaret Tait Award is a Glasgow Film Festival commission supported by Creative Scotland and LUX Scotland. Inspired by the pioneering Orcadian filmmaker and writer Margaret Tait (1918–99), the Award was established in 2010 to support the wealth of talent emerging from artists working with the moving image in Scotland through a £10,000 prize to produce ambitious new work.
