The 15 minute film ‘Hope Springs Eternal’ which Strike a Light created in collaboration with filmmaker Si Mitchell in October 2011 continues to receive positive responses. It was shown at White Night 2011 in Brighton as part of a wider event organised by Strike a Light also called ‘Hope Springs Eternal’, and again in December at Fabrica gallery as part of the ‘Relativity’ event.
‘Taking part in the ‘Hope Springs Eternal’ film was an interesting experience. I so hope that such a film will help to inspire similar events’.
