Eloquent speech by writer, film-maker Shamim Sarif on why art, or more accurately, independent thought matters.
This must be the place
‘This must be the place’ is a series of short films that explore the idea of home; what makes them, how they represent us, why we need them.
This film is about a John Coffer, ( it was at this point I was going to label him, but I would prefer not to – just watch and make you’re own mind up).
A thought that popped into my head as I watched it was that as tranquil as it looks, he is made out to be a bit of a loner, which is a shame as this may deter others from reassessing and learning to live more rationally.
