Charity

UK, 2017

Inspired by the ways in which the work of film-maker, poet and artist Margaret Tait (1918 – 1999), invites us to contemplate fundamental emotions and everyday activities that are often overlooked, Charity takes artistic representations of breastfeeding as its focus. The film explores how the essential – but largely invisible and unpaid – processes we employ to care for others could be re-imagined.

Charity was commissioned by the Margaret Tait Award which is supported by LUX/ LUX Scotland and Glasgow Film Festival.
