DRY MY HAIR MY FEET ARE CLEAN was made for friend and angel MacGillivray. She is the poet, musician and artist Kirsten Norrie. Author of three collections of poetry published by Bloodaxe in the UK and Red Hen in the US, she has made nine records, working with producer and musician James Young (Nico, John Cale) and her music features in the soundtracks of three of my films. As well as filming her gorgeously active hands I trawled back through super 8 footage shot in Scotland and The French Pyrenees as well as family archive shot in The Yemen which was salvaged by Anonymous Bosch. The track DRY MY HAIR MY FEET ARE CLEAN left me stranded in a pool of awe. It is taken from the album IN MY END IS MY BEGINNING and was funded by Creative Scotland, it was inspired by the words of Mary Queen of Scots. The lyrics are set to dulcitone and embedded with air recorded at many of the places Mary lived, was imprisoned and died in.
