Stranger: Documentary Video & Sound Installation
This project was a true filmmaking adventure. It was a social experiment as much as it was a visually creative one. With a photocopied map of Brighton in our hands and the word Stranger written across it in red, we followed the curves and turnings of the letters on a mission to experience and document the alternative route across Brighton.
The result is this 3 part video and sound installation, that was inspired by Guy Debord’s Society of the Spectacle and the experimental City Symphony films of the Avant Guarde, such as Dziga Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera and Walter Ruttmann’s Berlin: Symphony of a Metropolis. The installation has been exibited at the Burt Brill & Cardens Exhibition, Brighton, 2006.

Since the war ended in 1991, new laws have been passed granting Eritrean women the right to vote, own land and work in any job they choose.
