A FOOT in The Park
Made between 2004 and 2010… This story came from observing the silhouettes of people walking on the edge between the earth and the sky in Brockwell park, London.
This idea combined, with the ending of the film, became “A foot in The Park”. In the editing, other ideas from using converted 8mm films from my childhood in Sweden, Nigeria and Kenya were incorporated into the film.
The final wrapper, so to speak, is from an anthology of poems written by Somali refugees, in one of the large camps, up there in North Western Kenya. Hence the dedication at the end of the film.
