FRIENDS FOREVER - ANON / by Emma Barnaby

"My film ‘Friends Forever’ is a simple documentary that follows two street artists/'writers’ paint in a hidden urban landscape. Throughout shooting the film I wanted to experience what it was like to be avoiding surveillance and find out how it affected these ‘writers’, in terms of their artwork and their lives. There is a strong connection between the surveyor and the artist. When security cameras are surveying the artists, their behavior changes instantly. The artists want and need to hide their identity. They paint fast. Duration is short."
