No Escape is based on the concept of documentary display, an approach that encourages listening and looking rather than cognitive understanding. It conveys a belief in the supremacy of sound and in the idea of film as a performance, as witnessed in the days of early cinema when ‘silent’ films were accompanied not only by live musicians but by live sound effects troupes.
There is a personal subtext being worked out in No Escape – the attempt to escape is real. I shot most of the images alone on various journeys around the UK and Ireland using a variety of cameras of greatly differing quality. Keith Marley assisted with some footage shot in Liverpool and offered valuable editing advice.
