Boris Gerrets: Still from People I Could Have Been and Maybe Am (2010)

This exhibition featuring major works by the acclaimed Amsterdam-London based documentary filmmaker and artist Boris Gerrets embodies his desire “to bring to light life on the fringes”. The exhibition is centred on Gerrets’ multi-award winning film People I Could Have Been and Maybe Am (2010) which gathered outstanding critical acclaim worldwide, receiving IDFA Best Mid-Length Doc Award (Amsterdam), VISIONS DU RÉEL Best Direction Mid-Length Doc (Nyon), HOTDOCS Honorable Mention (Toronto), TIME OUT Best City Film Award (London) and many others.

Captured entirely on a mobile phone, the film evolves from two chance encounters on the streets of London. Starring Sandrine, an attractive Brazilian young woman on a mission to find a husband, Steve a seasoned beggar, struggling with drug addiction and Precious, a poet who became Steve's girlfriend, the film gives an unusually close view into their lives.

In-Conversation Event: Saturday 19 May, 3 - 4.30pm.

Centrespace, Visual Research Centre is part of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design and is located on the lower floors of Dundee Contemporary Arts, 152 Nethergate, Dundee.
