Four page visual essay exploring two films thematically linked through the context of War and Peace. The work was commissioned as a n extension out of practice based research located in narrative landscape and boundaries. Selected titles: A Matter of Life and Death, 1946 M.Powell and E Pressburger and Stalker, 1979. A Tarkovsky. These films were used as a catalyst to a practice based set of responses and accompanying written text.The commission enabled methodologies developed through practice based research to be tested through application to a publication context. The relationship with the selected films as narrative for personal practice created a space for re-interpretation as a way to extend a research direction from the private to the public space.
