ACCLAIMED Scottish artist Rachel Maclean has been commissioned to make a new feature-length film to mark the centenary of the first women getting the vote.

Commissioned by 14-18 NOW, a programme of cultural events marking the end of the First World War, and BBC Scotland, it will be set at the former St Peter’s Seminary near Cardross in Argyll and Bute.

The film, entitled Make Me Up, will be produced by arts organisation and charity NVA and Hopscotch Films, both based in Glasgow.

It will have screenings across the UK and will be broadcast on the BBC in 2018. Described as part horror movie, part comedy, it will “reflect on the shortcomings of a century of female enfranchisement”.

The film imagines a dystopian future where a group of women are trapped in a cruel reality TV-style competition set within the brutalist architecture of St Peter’s.

Maclean is a Glasgow-based artist and Edinburgh College of Art graduate who works mainly with the moving image and who represented Scotland at the famous Venice Biennale last year.

She said: “Make Me Up is my most ambitious film to date. I’m so excited to be working with such accomplished production companies and arts organisations on this project.”
