Three teenage boys amidst the England of their upbringing.


Housing estates that edge onto agricultural fields, rec greens and playgrounds, walls of crumbling stonework, bare bridges over narrow streams.  Sites of nature and nurture, of industry and idleness.


Environments reflect in on themselves.  Moments extend timelessly.   Characters observe or ignore themselves.   A boy smokes.   Another swings.  Someone stands swaying in a field.  Another cycles endlessly in a boarded-up estate.   Their only company the place, and themselves.  The external and the internal.


Character and environment, time and place, and the relationships between each, are encircled.


Born England, 1973.  Duane Hopkins is an artist and filmmaker.
