Colour Poems

Year1974 Duration12 min. DirectorMargaret Tait Production Ancona Films


1976 Festival Independent British Cinema, Bristol / Edinburgh International Film Festival /  International Avant-Garde Festival of Film, London.

Nine visual poems are interlinked, embraced and whispered. Words and images, some of which are created whilst others are formed by chance, occur in an oniric pattern in this experimental film: branches drawn, a military procession, a pair of old boots that the air blows softly, the seashore, the sound of a plane and a jazz melody that fills the end of the film with unconcerned optimism. Portraits of concepts, such as innocence, firm land or the swell of the sea.
