Event description
Her Century: A glimpse into the work, home life and leisure of Scottish women during the twentieth century.

About this Event

Join us for a FREE movie celebrating International Women's Day 2020.

Scotland’s women lived through major social change in the twentieth century, challenging their roles in society and fighting for equality: at work and at home, classroom to croft, girlhood to motherhood.

Discover their stories and hear their voices in Her Century, a timely collection of archive film curated by the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive and guaranteed to spark debate. These films are screened together for the first time in a touring programme full of contemporary relevance.

Featuring work from Scottish female filmmakers including Sarah Erulkar, Brigid ‘Budge’ Cooper and Jenny Gilbertson, these rarely-seen films follow women’s histories through 100 years of filmmaking in Scotland.

Highlights include:

● Male and Female (1980) – A public health film directed by prolific but undiscovered documentary maker Sarah Erulkar, featuring teenagers discussing their views on gender roles in the 1980s.

● Herring Harvest at Yarmouth (1910c) – An early film showing the ‘Scotch lassies’ hard at work gutting and packing fish in Yarmouth, some 600 miles from home.

● A Day in the Home (1951) – An educational film for domestic science pupils about the ‘proper’ role of the housewife and mother in post-war Scotland.

Her Century is supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network and funded by BFI and Screen Scotland. In partnership with the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive.
