Andrew Black, recipient of the 2021 Margaret Tait Award, presents ​‘A Vision of Hell’, a contextual screening bringing together references that have shaped the development of his award commission, ​‘On Clogger Lane’ (2023). The screening includes a selection of short films and mini-documentaries which touch on themes of surveillance, protest and land ownership.

Established in 2010, the Margaret Tait Award is a LUX Scotland commission delivered in partnership with Glasgow Film, supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland. Inspired by the pioneering Orcadian filmmaker and poet Margaret Tait (1918 – 99), the award recognises experimental and innovative artists working with the moving image, offering a unique avenue of commissioning and production support and providing a high-profile platform to exhibit newly commissioned work. ​‘On Clogger Lane’ will permiere at Glasgow Film Theatre on 21 February, tickets are free, booking via the LUX Scotland website.
