The Future is Fluid
HUCK PRINT MAGAZINE: Trashed trainers are a perfect symbol of excess. They tell tales of forgotten parties and reckless raves, each scuff and smear reminding us of times we’ve pushed things too far. Ever since trainers evolved from being purely functional to a fixture of mainstream fashion, no other item of clothing has played a bigger role in the history of youth culture. In the mid-1980s, after Nike launched its Air Jordan line and Adidas signed an endorsement deal with Run–DMC (the first of its kind), the art of collecting kicks quickly became a subculture of its own. There would be legendary rarities and deadstock, custom alterations and secret cleaning techniques, shrewd swaps and out-of-control auctions. It’s an addiction that has spread through all classes and ethnicities, signifying meaning in everything from social status to gender politics. But true sneakerheads don’t believe in keeping their stash stored away in immaculate condition. They’re to be worn and lived in, accompanying the ups and downs, only kept for as long as they matter.

Hanger: The Temple of Sleepy Chan
The Temple of Sleepy Chan
Resting in a middle of a business park in Bedfordshire, England stands one of the most controversial holding centers in The United Kingdom with a population of over 400 people, majority women, placed there not because they have committed criminal offences but to facilitate immigration claims. In its four minute run time, Calling Home paints a portrait of alienation for female asylum seekers inside Yarl’s Wood narrated by some detainees and deliberately eliminates the typical violent imagery attached to prison cinema by utilizing phone calls and letter correspondence since shooting at the detention center is illegal. London based filmmaker, Jade Jackman took home the 2018 Best UK Short Film at the 2018 BFI Future Film Festival and continues to center her gaze towards a non-exploitative approach to documenting violence that’s so perfectly executed in 'Calling Home'.
