Fencing, is a short film by acclaimed photographer and occasional 125 contributor Donald Christie. Produced as a companion to his fashion shoot in the Escape issue, this slightly disconcerting short is a jarring comment on constraint and conformity which can really only be explained by the man himself:
'Recognising that imagination and creativity (aligned with action) are two of the most powerful tools in commentary and change, this story takes an object 1km long and plays with its physicality and environs - it is a fence. Two key reference points are the 1968/2006 Paris student demonstrations and various attempts to cross the Berlin Wall, the most noted, and indeed the most obvious, attempted methods of escape from East Berlin were by climbing, tunneling and flying. The student graffiti of 1968 created a lexicon of anti establishment rhetoric that still resonates today.'
