Lesley Cherry was awarded the Anacostia ARCH Development/Arts Council of Northern Ireland residency in association with the Golden Thread Gallery in February 2012. This video was made in response to her experiences in the mainly afro-american region of Anacostia, Washington DC where the residency was based. This film, along with 'Some Words No 2', was shown as part of the '16th and Minnesota' exhibition at the Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast in January 2013. The film features Cherry in conversation with musician Paul Kane, recounting stories and observations from her stay in the often misunderstood and deprived area of the United States capital, coupled with photographic images taken by the artist during her stay.
