Tish

T I S H

NOW PLAYING! Only at the Hyland Cinema!

Paul Sng’s powerful film celebrates the work of social documentary photogeapher Tish Murtha and her commitment to fighting for the communities like the one she grew up in. Born in the northern coastal town of South Shields, she was driven by a fierce conviction to record the impact of Thatcher era de-industrialisation upon local communities. Her striking black and white photos convey a tenderness and intimacy that set her apart from her peers and her work would become a powerful record of a world decimated by a new and ruthless form of capitalism. The film follows Tish’s daughter Ella as she revisits key moments from her mother’s life and work. She is accompanied by people who remained close to Tish throughout her life, and who are committed to ensuring her remarkable legacy is recognised.

TISH - FILM REVIEWS

"Paul Sng’s documentary Tish is one of the best British films of 2023 – both a heartfelt tribute to the life and work of the late photographer Tish (born Patricia) Murtha and a timely reminder of the war waged on the nation’s industrial working-class." - Graham Fuller, The Arts Desk (FULL REVIEW HERE)

"Tish is a tremendous, humane tribute to a real artist." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian (FULL REVIEW HERE)
