Film Makers

About this project

Created as part of the 2-year Film Makers project, which invited six contemporary practitioners to create new work in response to archive footage digitized by Northern Ireland Screen for BFI’s Britain on Film. The archive included sequences of turf being cut as my grandfather would have done when I was a child, and connected with an existing fascination with the use of turf for fuel.
