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.
