I completed my MA Visual Anthropology documentary in late 2009, but didn’t make it widely available, at the request of the primary research participants. Now, five years later, the protagonists have all moved on with their lives to a place at which they feel able to share this film. We hope that you find it insightful, and informative. Thanks to the women of WAST for their support. (Click below to watch)
Still Life (27 mins)
“I am here because I can’t go home”. Subject to strict controls in the UK, three women asylum seekers wait for claims to be processed and decisions made. Arriving from Africa and Asia to be housed in Greater Manchester, they rely on informal networks to get by. They find the lives which they fled to save put on indefinite hold.
