Winner of the Northern Artists’ Film Commission.
Part of the Salford Museum and Art Gallery Collection
Psychogeography meets Open University in this surreal instructional video for sociologists, film-makers and of course property developers looking to “rightly read an area”. Employing a variety of film-making techniques, ONE SQUARE MILE hints at the rich diversity of urban spaces whilst demonstrating the absurdity of trying to represent them in any meaningful way.
Featuring a soundtrack by Graham Massey.
One Square Mile was co-commissioned by University of Salford and Quays Culture.
Screener available on request.
