6 March 2016: That a Thing Once Happened Has Happened for Always


"Film again proves itself capable of delivering wonder and mystery and the complexity of being." – Gareth Evans

This unique programme curated by Ute Aurand and Peter Todd brings together eight of their films all shown on 16mm. The programme also celebrates the work of the late, great Orcadian filmmaker and poet Margaret Tait, whom they both knew. Whitechapel film curator Gareth Evans will introduce the evening followed by Q&A with Aurand and Todd.
