1976 - Royaume-Uni - Couleur - 31'

Margaret Tait documents her house, studio and garden in Buttquoy, Orkney as the seasons pass. She had lived there from the age of seven and often returned. At the time of filming, the house was about to be taken back by the council. "Place of Work was meant to define a place, or the feeling of being in one place, with the sense this gives, not of restriction, but of the infinite variations available. An evocation of a place with lifelong associations and latterly used as a work place. A family home, from which at the time of filming, the family had long gone.” (Margaret Tait)
