A World Apart is a multi-channel video installation based upon the theme of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It is the representational narrative of three individuals, all of whom are in the process of dealing with and coming to terms with PTSD.
The ultimate aim would be to have this multi-screen installation at the interactive exhibition space during the (WISH) World Innovation Summit for Health’s global community conference that will be convening for a fourth time in Doha on November 13th and 14th, 2018.
From there, it would be possible to see the installation at the Museum of Modern Art and St Anthony’s College, Oxford with a view to touring the piece around the UK to raise awareness and to highlight the tireless work undertaken by Oxfordshire Mind, Refugee Resource and Asylum Welcome.
Possible participants might include:-
- Sultana Afdhal, Chief Executive Officer of the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH).
- Dr Mukesh Kapila CBE is Professor of Global Health and Humanitarian Affairs, University of Manchester.
- Dr Mohammed Bin Ghanim Al-Ali Al Maadeed, Chairman of Qatar Red Crescent, an active part of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent.
- Oxfordshire Mind.
- Refugee Resource.
- Asylum Welcome.
Andi Reiss – filmmaker, video artist, producer
A recent Trustee of Oxfordshire Mind, Andi is an Oxford based film and video producer, director, writer, editor, visual journalist, media artist and lecturer. He is an award winning independent documentary maker with experience in graphic design, filmmaking, photography, art, installation, exhibition, publishing and theatre production. His work has always attempted to demonstrate the power and significance of storytelling with investigative journalism, and also to uncover stories of people who have been ignored by the mainstream media or left otherwise without voice. Often with a political aspect, it incorporates a range of artistic disciplines, uniting them within a social and cultural context. Andi works with a small team, but has the rare combination of storytelling, photography and people skills that, hopefully makes his work as interesting as it might be challenging, placing a fresh focus on its subject matter.
This project is being developed in association with Oxfordshire Mind.
