This colourful documentary, made by film-maker Steve White with Bristol artist Jilly Morris, records the experience of being an artist in residence in a remote rural setting in Northumberland. The charity 'Visual Arts in Rural Communities' has invited the artist to spend one year in a moorland landscape to live and work within a hill-farming community. Filmed throughout the year and including the artist's own video diaries, this film conveys the experience of a city girl artist living and working in isolation, getting to grips with nature and discovering the art of walking in all weathers. Throughout all this, Jilly must create a body of artwork for her first ever solo show.
Filmed and Edited by Steve White.
Original Music by Dan Lewis.
