The starting point of "Tenant" is an interview the artist conducted with her grandparents. It tells the story of a woman who rented a room in their home during the Second World War and who turned out to be a friend of Vladimir Lenin, whom she helped travel from Switzerland to Russia in the 'sealed train' after the 'February Revolution' broke out in Russia in 1917. In the film, the artist explores how knowledge is produced through a complex structure of personal needs and social expectations via the sets, costumes and scripts.
Tenant was commissioned by Film London Artists Moving Image Network and Collective Gallery, Edinburgh. It was produced by City Projects, London.
