The Work They Say is Mine – Women in Shetland, the Camera Wife, the Soond Lass, and the Makkin’

IMG_0254As a part of the Dundee Women’s Festival, Graduate Women Scotland East, in conjunction with Lifelong Learning Dundee, will be presenting this an award-winning drama-documentary, which celebrates the lives of Shetland women, past and present.

Made with an all women crew, it won the Television and Radio Industries Club of Scotland (TRICS) Award in 1987. Shetland women connect us back to a way of life that has been similar for generations, telling the story of the knitters, their skilled and creative work and how they tried to make a living for themselves and their families within an unfair bartering system on the island.

Rarely seen, the screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Rosie
Gibson, and curator Liane Cumming.

March 7 2020, tickets available through the Dundee Women’s Festival.
