Happy Bees

Year1955 Duration17 min. DirectorMargaret Tait Production Ancona Films

Tait evokes the pleasant childhood on the Orkney Islands, a lost paradise that the author remembers without rainy days and with immensely green landscapes. This poem is a song to the happiness of being a child, playing and innocence and is a first portrait of the landscape where she lived until the age of seven, her memory’s first geography. It is a film that works as an evocation, as the author says “when we wrongly believed that it was sunny all the time”.
