The inspiration for this film came from the memories and lived experiences of the people of Stonehouse. Drawn from an archive of over two hundred photographs and eleven hours of audio recording, it seeks to reveal something of the significance of Stonehouse not only for it's residents, but to the city of Plymouth and beyond. Places become what the art critic Lucy Lippard describes as 'the latitude and longitude of a person's life', something which is clearly present in the passion and commitment of the participants. For my part, I had the privilege of editing the material and discovering for myself through the moving image, the essence of Stonehouse and its layered history. The philosopher Edward Casey argues that places 'are as requisite as the air we breath'; Stonehouse is one such place -Verity Treloar Fim Maker
