Parallel (2016) is a 14-minute experimental film that examines the enduring resonance of landscape and location in television and cinema. Using strategies of re-enactment, it transposes scenes of narrative fiction and substitutes settings to produce a series of uncanny vignettes.

The research interrogated audience expectations of popular narrative fiction and explored the agency of location in the cinematic treatment of landscape and character. It set out to reclaim the gap between fiction and reality by anchoring the project with local communities and, through innovative use of popular moving image media, it sought to uncover visual and cultural connections between the North East of England and West Sweden.
