A poetic homage to the KX100 phone box by director Will Dohrn. Featuring spoken word by James Massiah (previously featured here), “KX100” celebrates the cultural British icon before their nationwide removal from the streets of the UK. As Massiah nostalgically attests, the phone booth was once a breeding ground of social interaction that has become increasingly redundant as times and technologies have changed. For Dohrn, the film is about fostering greater appreciation for the objects and spaces that make up our lived environment:

“Using slit scan photography we turn an often un-appreciated object into a mesmerising contortion. Moving focus to an object that is often just a background prop in which events take place or around, now the KX100 becomes the event itself, as we pierce through the ignorance and comfort that come with the familiarity that dulls the world around us as we grow up and get older.”
