Set in England (Liverpool, London) in 1999 and 2015 (Sheffield) and based on a true story, Briefly reminds us of the existence of real life, chance encounters that engage the heart. Youth, love, adventure, and the call of the road mix together with age-old traditional values deeply embedded into the psyches of kids of immigrants, more specifically, the diaspora of India and Pakistan.
It's a work of creative nonfiction by Dipika Kohli.
Dipika Kohli's written and visual work, as well as curations, juxtapose people, place, and found imagery in 'minitheaters'. She engages with media at hand, wherever she is, to build something out of what's available in that moment, with that feeling. A bricolage artist at heart, she thus invites the new to enter any frame: when mixed, there is invitation for those who are participant to connect, reconnect, and revisit their idea of such fixed thinking as 'this is where this is taking us' and 'here is what we know.' Do we know anything, for sure? Ask the quantum physicists. Ask N. Bohr: 'How wonderful that we have met with a paradox; now we have some hope of making progress.'
