Safety Tips for Kids, Roz Mortimer
Roz Mortimer is an artist and filmmaker who lives and works in London. Since 1995 she has been producing both short and long-form experimental films which have been widely screened around the world at film festivals, galleries, cinemas and on television.
She has lectured at universities in the UK and USA and her work has been supported by Arts Council England, Wellcome Trust, Rockefeller Foundation, British Council, Film London, FLAMIN, LAFVA, Eastern Arts and Channel 4 Television.
Her work is focused on expanded and experimental forms of documentary across a range of media: from film and video to photography, sound, installation and performance. Earlier works unpicked notions of Englishness and explored animal-human relations, whereas more recent films have focused on specific global locations from the High Arctic to the Italian Lakes, creating layered and thought provoking portraits which blur the boundaries between staged theatre and documentary whilst challenging our social and political understanding of the world today.
