Youth of Today

"...If the children are not initiated in to the village they will burn it down just to feel it’s warmth..."

During the summer of 2010 Eelyn Lee ran a 4-day lab exploring the various meanings of this African saying with a group of young women on the Ferrier Estate, south London.

In collaboratoration with photographer Nicola Dracoulis the group began by constructing a series of narrative photographic images. The still image that appears at the beginning of the film below inspired the action that unfolds.

The project was part of the Kidbrooke Residency.
