TISH is now available to watch in select cinemas across the UK from Friday 17th November.
TISH had its world premiere as the opening night film at the Sheffield DocFest in 2023 and has since garnered numerous commendable reviews. The film has also received several nominations and it was most recently longlisted in the Best Feature Documentary category at the BIFAs.
The highly anticipated film celebrates the vision and profound humanism of the artist Tish Murtha, a photographer whose powerful imagery captured the essence of working-class communities. Directed by Paul Sng (POLY STYRENE: I AM A CLICHE, DISPOSSESSION), the documentary unveils the life experiences, struggles, and achievements of Murtha, questioning the value placed on art and artists from working class roots – as well as following Tish’s daughter Ella, in her drive to preserve her mother’s legacy.
The film was made with the support of the BFI Doc Society Fund and Screen Scotland (thanks to National Lottery funding) in association with BBC England and BBC Arts.
Together Films are thrilled to have acquired world sales rights for TISH alongside a UK deal with distributor Modern Films.
