Another England” is a cycle of films exploring a town on the edges of English society. It is a meditiation on this marginal, sometimes otherworldly place, and the characters that haunt it.
What does it mean to belong to somewhere? The four films explore different aspects of the complexity of belonging: “Blue Lagoon” the final film in the cycle, looks at it through the eyes of the misfits who have a romantic and even mystical connection to the wildllife and the haunting sense of place of the petrochemical estuary on the edges of the town.
My work has been described as “art from somewhere that’s fallen off the edge of the map, from a place as far from the centre of English society and culture as it’s possible to go, economically, socially and spiritually – as close to the edges and ends of England as it gets.
