video title:
turn the book around
duration 1’42”, 2009

too many victims, and not just historically – go silent no longer, the book of your lives unread, instead turn the book around. this film, like the rest of my work is about giving voice, allowing the silent/silenced to speak and giving voice to these these creative alternatives, these strategies for survival.
