This video uses film footages to construct a sense of place: Keep is a film of Berwick and its surroundings made up of fragments of feature fims that have used the area as a setting. Excerpts from Jean Vadim's One More Kiss (1999), Roman Polanski's Cul-de-Sac (1966) and Ken Russell's The Devils (1970), amongst others, are edited together to recreate a loose narrative taking place in the same location.
