3 [6 October 2008]

The videos have been really well received, especially in the UK. In France the Memorial Commission are interested in doing a screening in the camp which would be really good, but it is difficult to pin them down to a date. Last time I went past the camp the work had started on the memorial and it was strange to see that some of the huts had been demolished.

The most recent project in which I have been involved was the "War and Peace" event organised by Fiona Meadley on 21st September 2008 for World Peace Day. Films by 8 artists were selected to be shown in various venues including the Arnolfini in Bristol. One of my films of Rivesaltes was chosen. The showreel was really powerful and was followed by a discussion chaired by Prof Paul Gough of the UWE. See the War and Peace website for more details:
