Situations on film: Missorts by Tony White
The film tracks the collaboration between novelist Tony White and the musician, Jamie Telford, to conceive of an urban soundwork for Bristol. A permanent public artwork for the city, Missorts combines ten location-triggered fictional stories by ten writers set to a newly composed soundtrack immersing listeners in a surprising, new experience of the city. The 8-minute film describes how the project unfolded in a specific time and place with exclusive behind-the scenes in situ interviews with the artists, and commentaries from leading critics and writer, Michael Smith.
