Watch two films with a strong Margate resonance.

Ofrendas – Walking With Shrines by Thread and Word/Elspeth Penfold

Nine artists create shrines for Stories and Poems in Margate. Featuring work by Jess Kidd, Elise Valmorbida, PJ Whiteley and Owen Lowery.

Transitions by Owen Lowery

At the age of 18 Owen became paralysed from the shoulders down. As well as considering his own transition from able-bodied sports star to disabled poet, he will look at the subject of transitions in the natural world and in human terms, by looking at areas such as migration, disability and social change.

Warning – includes reference to Liverpool FC.

Both films are on the big screen at the Margate School. That’s in the Old Woolworths building opposite the Sands Hotel.
