Filmed in infrared, the objective was to use a humanitarian approach to refugees fleeing the world trouble spots.
Terence Cave's recent book 'Thinking with Literature' argues powerfully that literature and storytelling are capacities of intellect and memory:
Human cognition is alert, attentive, responsive. Above all, it is imaginative: it can think beyond the constraints of immediate experience, do strange things with words, conjure up futures and histories of all kinds, bring to life people who never existed and invent for them plausible stories and environments. Despite the tangible evidence that this is so, the word 'cognition' has traditionally been used to refer to the rations knowledge -seeking processes of the mind as opposed to other modes of engagement with the world
The capacity to make things up is away from thinking.
