About this Event

THE WORK THEY SAY IS MINE – WOMEN IN SHETLAND: THE CAMERA WIFE, THE SOOND LASS AND THE MAKKIN’

An event by Graduate Women Scotland East in collaboration with Lifelong Learning Dundee, in Lecture Theatre 1, Dalhousie Building

An award-winning drama-documentary celebrating the lives of Shetland women, past and present. Made with an all-women crew in 1986, it won the Television and Radio Industries Club of Scotland (TRICS) Award . Shetland women connect us back to a way of life that has been similar for generations, telling the story of the knitters, their skilled and creative work and how they tried to make a living for themselves and their families within an unfair bartering system on the island.

Rarely seen, the screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Rosie Gibson, and curator Liane Cumming.

Online booking closes three days before the event.
