Libations for the lost at Terminalia is a short film documenting a collaborative walk featuring Elia Cervera Bravo (Spain), Richard Byrne (UK), Stephen Donnelly (Canada), Sonia Overall (UK), Elspeth (Billie) Penfold (UK). We walked at Terminalia, 23rd February 2021, exploring gates and boundaries in our locales, carrying offerings and libations to remember those lost. Artists submitted digital footage of their walks which I edited together to create the film. The resulting piece was shown at the online Terminalia Festival of Psychogeography 2021, ‘Everywhere: Borders’, hosted by Bernardo Bruno in Rome on 27th February.
