Shezad Dawood in conversation
The above video is of a public discussion between artist Shezad Dawood and In Certain Places director Charles Quick, which was filmed at the Harris Museum & Art Gallery, Preston. It explores the themes and inspirations of Dawood’s science fiction film, Piercing Brightness, and includes questions from the audience, many of whom were involved in the film as members of the cast and crew.
Piercing Brightness was shot on location in Preston during summer 2011 and is the outcome of a two and a half year relationship between Dawood, In Certain Places and the people and places of Preston. The film was released in 2012 and shown in Preston at a celebratory event as part of the Preston Guild activities in September 2012.
