86 mins – United Kingdom 1992 – Dir: Margaret Tait
Starring: Celia Imrie, Jack Shepherd, Gerda Stevenson
This haunting and magical film moves between Edinburgh and Orkney as it tells of a woman’s attempts to come to terms with her mother’s death through her childhood memories. Featuring a complex, ‘Russian doll’ narrative and spanning three generations of one family, Blue Black Permanent was the first Scottish feature film directed by a woman. Tait makes poetic and imaginative use of sea imagery in this intimate generational portrait of the echoing relationships between mothers and daughters.
