"This blatant jab at past colonial masters is as close as Bhimji ever gets to outright political commentary in her languid, lyrical filmmaking.”
Ossian Ward, Time Out
"Bhimji's camerawork is never hectic or quick. There is no rapid shifting from scene to scene. The camera always pans slowly. We see a little of something, and then as the camera pulls back, a fuller view emerges. It is a meditation upon objects, a fingering of their surfaces, a probing of the meaning of their presence and their condition."
Michael Glover, The Independent

Zarina Bhimji is also showing Waiting. Waiting was shot in East Africa in a factory used to process Sisal and has an abstraction that hovers somewhere between film and painting. The washed-out colour of the hair-like material, the light, and the interior of the factory create a saturated monochrome that, combined with the film's soundtrack, becomes immersive.
