Typist Artist Pirate King + Director Q&A

Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival

We’re thrilled to welcome director Carol Morley to DCA for a Q&A after this preview screening, in collaboration with Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival.  

"…weaves real events into an imagined journey"

Typist Artist Pirate King puts forgotten artist Audrey Amiss on the map. Inspired by her extensive archive of diaries, letters and art, the film weaves real events into an imagined journey as Audrey goes on a road trip with her psychiatric nurse. 

From acclaimed British filmmaker Carol Morley and starring Monica Dolan and Kelly Macdonald, this dark and funny exploration of the growing friendship between two women as they hit the road in an electric car looking for reconciliation is filled with adventure, humour and compassion. 

The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF), led by the Mental Health Foundation, takes place from 4-22 October 2023. Now in its 17th year, the festival will explore the theme of Revolution. Visit to explore the full programme and book tickets.
