Dan Guthrie

Coaley Peak (A Fragment), 2021

Dan Guthrie was selected by Exeter Phoenix for their 2021 Artists’ Moving Image commission. His idea was to make a film about Blackness and belonging in the English countryside, taking a family photo of some of his relatives at the Gloucestershire viewpoint Coaley Peak as a starting point. Whilst making the film, something happened.

This premiere screening, shows alongside the 2019 cohort of Exeter Phoenix short film commissions as part of the Two Short Nights film festival.
