A note on the film : KNOW by Benn Northover
"I chose the song KNOW because of the lyrics. The film is a collection of diaristic observations, all quite moments of traveling alone; a taxi window crossing Brooklyn bridge, an airport
landscape at 6am, a motorway tunnel at night, all traveling shots. This was intercut with footage of my sisters new young family in England, who I never see enough.
The lyrics " Know that I love you, Know I don't care, Know that I see you, Know I'm not there" resonated very much with me and how I sometimes feel in my life, being in different places,
often far away from those I love, sometimes hurting them with my absence.
