No Place

The film examines a narrow city passageway that links two shopping zones together, and the social actors that occupy it – albeit fleetingly. The environment is in a sense the character of the film – it is both the background context and the foreground subject. The passageway in question is an ambiguous space, being as it is, formed out of the back walls of commercial buildings in close proximity to one another which act to both create an external barrier to the public – which prevents access – while at the same time establishing a new place – the passageway. Monitored at either end by CCTV.
