'Margaret was born in 1918 on Orkney, but was sent away to school in Edinburgh when she was nine. Her impressions of the strangeness of that (to her) 'new' urban world are echoed in Where I am is Here with its melancholic, repetitive structure, images of coal-blackened streets, and sad 'crocodiles' of shoolgirls in rigid uniforms; a film that is none the less essentially about coming to terms with 'the present'.' - David Curtis
