Project Description

FILMS

You can take a long slow look with Mark Jenkins at Rackwick, “the hidden valley of light” of George Mackay Brown’s poem, with the sounds of voices of the people of Hoy, past and present. You can explore the shore with Raymond Besant, with some previously unseen sequences of life along the Orkney shore. You can wonder with Selena S Kuzman about the sea and its transformations, and our relationship to it. “Our bodies follow the tidal movement of ebb and flow, hope and despair, joy and sorrow – are we carried in a deeper flow?”

The moisture in our bodies links us to the rain from the sky and the water of the seas. Our bodies follow the tidal movement of ebb and flow, hope and despair, joy and sorrow – are we carried in a deeper flow?
