Cold Specks - Season of Doubt

(4 mins, b&w, 16mm,  2015)

'Season of Doubt' was made in collaboration with Ladan Hussein from the band Cold Specks. We wanted to respond to the events that were playing out at the time in Ferguson, USA. Shot on 16mm, using techniques of masking and in-camera collage, the video merges a dissolving portrait of Ladan with footage of the protests shot on mobile phones. These contemporary images become transformed when filtered through an old medium, making us second-guess what we are looking at. They are all the more shocking because of their resemblance to images we might have hoped were historical in nature.
