"All my films poems paintings play more or less between inner and outer events." – Joanna Margaret Paul
Filmmaker and curator Peter Todd presents this programme of 12 films, dedicated to New Zealand poet, painter, and filmmaker Joanna Margaret Paul. Often shot and edited in camera, her films chronicle motherhood and domestic life, the worn traces of urban settlement and the persistent presence of the natural world. Todd’s accompanying essay places Joanna Margaret Paul work in the lineage of filmmaker Margaret Tait and painter Frances Hodgkins. This screening follows the programmes presentation at the Glasgow Film Festival 2018 and last year’s sold out screening at London’s Close-Up cinema.
