Fabiola Santana & Will Dickie

A dance film shot beneath its street lights, capturing desolate cityscapes that will soon no longer be there. House prices continue to rise and the redevelopers of East London are steadily encroaching from all sides.

Fabiola Santana and her Mother Leah moved to Canning Town from Portugal in 2008. In 2018 they moved out. This film honours those 10 years by making a dance with the forces of union and separation - between two lovers, a mum and daughter, a country and its continent.

If you would like to watch the film, please email me.

Camera work: Will Hanke
