Despite the fact that women filmmakers are crafting some of the most striking work in contemporary artist’s film and video, their ongoing importance has only recently begun to be registered on DVD. Emily Richardson’s short films are remarkably evocative witnesses to the deeper resonance of landscape. Made in locations as varied as North Sea oil fields, Cold War radar test sites, tower blocks and inner city London, they offer a very distinctive signature vision of under-examined zones, teasing out a sometimes fragile, sometimes usettling but always intriguing beauty, one delivered with real care and attention. — Gareth Evans, Time Out
