To Belfast - A short film about a city

Another video blog entry, a set of maps detailing the development of Belfast set to some music and poetry which illustrates my bitter-sweet relationship with the city along with the difficulty of maps for representation.

Music - 'Going to Your Funeral prt2' by The Eels, taken from the album 'Electro-Shock Blues'

Words - 'To Belfast' by Alan Gillis, taken from the book 'Somebody, Somewhere.' Please see previous 
 post ( for  words.
