The film was made using field recordings and social media contributed by the walkers. The films explores the experience of the Honouring Esther walks in Somerset in 2015.

The films is intended to be shown in a randomised loop with other Honouring Esther films and projected on uneven walls and distorting surfaces.

Indifference was the theme for one of the curated interventions.

Honouring Esther:

Two walks each lasting two days in Somerset, England and Lower Saxony, Germany. The line of a Nazi Death March transposed, returned and retraced, working with the testimony of human rights activist and Holocaust survivor, Esther Brunstein. The walks took place as Germany publicly welcomed refugees crossing the fields of Eastern Europe. Devised, curated and hosted with artist, Lorna Brunstein, Esther’s daughter. Both cycles of walks ended with an exhibition/installation.
