As essayistic meditation on mass movements of people since the Second World War, including today’s mass flight from war, the possibility of death and environmental catastrophe. Images of the natural elements and scenes taken from the films of, among others, Humphrey Jennings or Derek Jarman explore the relationship between the representation of movements and ideas.

“Notes from a country gripped by sudden political insularity: Boat People explores the meaning of welcome and the age-old possibilities of hospitality.” S. Wood
