A juxtaposition of 2 videos, Maryan & Rahma and Port of Call, created as part of the Bezruc Opava Festival with the theme of Europe. In the video Maryan and Rahma, documentary rawness and frankness meet in the simple stories of a Somali mother and daughter who are seeking asylum in Malta.  More than a poignant narrative of the plight of these émigrés, who risked their lives on the dangerous crossing between African borders and mainland Europe, this work targets the friction-causing gaps between human aspiration, flight, difference and intrusion. The second video, Port of Call, conceptualises a journey filmed from the sea, tracing a hazy portline until it locks into a docking point. A series of accompanying drawings examine the way space is partitioned and regimentalised.
