Glasgow Film Festival 2014, Tae Think Again: Rethinking Identity in Contemporary Scotland, 26th February


Tae Think Again: Rethinking Identity in Contemporary ScotlandN/C 12+

Wednesday 26 February, CCA

A response to the upcoming referendum on Scottish independence, this symposium curated by artist Rachel Maclean intends to delve deeper than a simple yes/no debate and look at the broader social, cultural and historical background to contemporary Scottish national identity.

The event will include a screening of the artist’s recent work The Lion and the Unicorn, which playfully reimagines Jeremy Paxman and Alex Salmond as the film’s titular heraldic characters.

Rachel won the Festival’s 2013 Margaret Tait Award, and her resulting film A Whole New World is screening on Monday 24 February (21.30). 

This is a free event in CCA Theatre, as part of Glasgow Film Festival’s Festival Club. Admission will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Speakers now confirmed for this event are author and poet Jackie Kay, political commentator Iain MacWhirter, Dr Scott Hames editor of Unstated: Writers on Scottish Independence and Rachel Maclean herself.

This event is BSL interpreted. For more information, please visit Access page.

Tae Think Again was originally developed as a symposium co-commissioned by Edinburgh Art Festival and Edinburgh Printmakers.
