In advance of his Margaret Tait Award commission premiere at Glasgow Film Festival 2016, Duncan Marquiss presents his most recent film work, Search Film (2015) and other short works. Search Film follows the artist’s father, the biologist Dr Mick Marquiss as he tracks goshawks, an elusive bird of prey, in rural north east Scotland. The film examines the nature of searching in a variety of contexts, comparing innate foraging behaviour with shopping and browsing databases.

This screening will be followed by a discussion with the artist, Mick Marquiss and Mason Leaver-Yap, where the three will discuss both the research, inspiration and production of the film.
