“My film practice has evolved to push the boundaries of collaboration, authorship and deep mapping. I am passionate about archive in particular archive film and photography. I have worked with the community of Padstow since 2010 and Golowan since 1999, reinterpreting their archive and making documentaries with them about their heritage. My interest in collaborative film, creative storytelling, intangible cultural heritage and ideas around place, identity and culture has further developed into a practice-based PhD.”
