John Macfadyen (The Stripes in the Tartan)

Year1970 Duration3 min. DirectorMargaret Tait Production Ancona Films

Like Calypso, another of her films hand-painted on celluloid but this time after returning to film on her native island. The song is the traditional John MacFayden melody performed by the Orkney Strathspey and Reel Society. The animated figures dance a Scottish dance in which there is no lack of colour, shine and rhythm.
