Tide Lines: A Short Film

Invited artists Alix Rothnie and Sarah Calmus will create a moving image work, in collaboration with Taigh Chearsabhagh and UistFilm and local communities responding directly to the waters of North Uist, and the threats to its community of an encroaching tide-line. The project is funded by SNH as part of Plunge In! Year of Coasts and Waters 2020

The low-lying Uists, in the Outer Hebrides, have been identified as one of the most vulnerable communities to the effects of climate change. Sea level rise, storm surges, marine overtopping, inland flooding and coastal erosion are current and imminent threats to this island community.
