Films

I trained in visual ethnography and documentary before later making film-poems composed from photographs and narration. I began developing these into music videos and hybrid essay/dramas, which extended into short films driven by narration and recurring appearances from characters who began to take on a deeper reality.

I’m now working on a longer 70 min film called ‘Negative Worlds’, which will push these methods further.

 

Selected Short Films

 

A Field of Islands

A dream-like short about the desire to find ‘negative islands’ from which the world might be unmade. Nisha Ramayya plays ‘S’, who circles between lime kiln tunnels, observation decks high above a future city, and the London clubbing scene.

SK Delivery

A short film set in the future. After the blossom wars, a lost figure travels from Japan to Shanghai II and then to the English Midlands on a solidarity mission, but it ends in the hills, beneath the thistles.

The End In Itself

They’re stealing roses, they’ve formed a gang to try to destroy time. They’re finding a way to make it without you.

Everyday I Don’t

Everyday the same thing happens, until it doesn’t. A circuit of ritual and fish flags, filmed in one continuous shot.

Negative Worlds

A mosaic film projected to be 70 mins. Prefiguration, restlessness of play and study and protest: a search for the negative of this world.
