On Freedom of Movement (wi de muv)

"On Freedom of Movement" (wi de muv) is a forthcoming artistic documentary that considers what it means to be free to move, not as in leave or flee, but to move. It explores the ability of the environments we live in – especially cities – to create the space people need to move. Shot in Freetown, Sierra Leone, it explores the power of the creative sectors in the city and their immense potential.
