Copies is one of 5 short films I was commissioned to make in Spring 2015 by Draw Down the Walls exploring and depicting invisible barriers experienced by 5 very different groups and their challenges. This film features individuals that took part during a 2 day campaign by Right To Work; Right To Welfare for Participation and Practice of Rights in Belfast in August 2015.
The films were screened alongside other moving image artworks and feature films as part of Invisible Barriers: Moving Images programme of special cinema events in collaboration with Belfast Film Festival in October 2015 across Belfast.
Draw-Down-The-Walls is a partnership between Golden Thread Gallery, North Belfast Interface Network and Lower Shankill Community Association that uses the arts to imagine a city without barriers.
Invisible Barriers: Moving Images is one of seven Creative Belfast projects funded by Belfast City Council and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland through the Creative and Cultural Belfast Fund.
