The Bravest Boat

Part of The Telling Image.  Ten films from eight film makers, curated by Gareth Evans for Estuary 2021

Sarah Wood and Ali Smith:  The Bravest Boat

How do we connect what we see and hear with what’s actually happening?
In the light and the dark of the 21st century, THE BRAVEST BOAT celebrates the legacy of Margaret Tait’s time in postwar Italy and the origin of her filmic vision. A collaboration inspired by Tait’s aesthetic communality and her understanding of what the image means – what cinema is for.
