End of the Road

A short film commissioned by AND (Abandon Normal Devices) for MOBILE REPUBLIC. The film was screened in a specially converted caravan and toured as part of MOBILE REPUBLIC. For this short film London Fieldworks accessed the Bailey caravan factory with a camera and a dolly in order to capture the intensity of the factory floor and the seemingly never-ending conveyor of production. End of the Road is an elegiac reflection on the contrasting symbolism of the touring caravan: from a gleaming symbol of freedom and leisure borne from a choreographed, automated Japanese-style production line, to an emblem of futile defiance right on the edge of a rapidly eroding Norfolk coastline. Employing the touring caravan as a speculative vehicle, the film juxtaposes an image of slick, efficient production with that of a deteriorating physical landscape. Soundtrack by Dugal McKinnon.
