Don't miss.....Cinepoetry Film Lounge Programme

Monday 13 September  - Sunday 24 October

Ranging from the poignant to the playful, these films either engage directly with literature or experiment with the pure poetry of abstraction. Through orchestrated layers of image and sound they each provide absorbing moments that resonate long after we've stopped looking.

The programme brings together works by Orcadian poet, painter and filmmaker, Margaret Tait, Scottish-Italian writer, academic and amateur filmmaker Enrico Cocozza, key feminist experimental filmmaker of 1980s and 1990s, Sandra Lahire and more recent works by Glasgow based artists Stephen Sutcliffe and Katy Dove.

The films presented in the programme are: 

Enrico Cocozza, Masquerade, 1953, 16 mins
Katy Dove, Stop it, 2006, 5 mins
Sandra Lahire, Lady Lazarus,1991, 25 mins
Stephen Sutcliffe, Vacillation, 2008, 35 secs
