When I picked up a graphic art book from 2001 in 2018, ‘Schizophrenic, A Lowdown Production, introducing Maroc’ I noticed two notions sitting together in an uneasy yet beautiful relationship- Escapism and Realism. In my lifetime I experienced Rave culture and Hip Hop culture.
The movement or transition between cultures has taken twenty years- in today’s thinking and through film I want to make momentary experiences. How could such a subject be discussed and presented by a contemporary film maker?
The opportunity to experiment and develop links between creativity and sense of self is key. Identity and Anonymity the notions that somehow enable balanced presence. Escapism and realism are ideas that I think about when I’m trying to find my place in all this.
