Common Place, a film by Andy Thatcher, is a hauntological exploration of access and climate crisis at a common in Devon.
Common Place was filmed as part of a series of explorations around the Pebblebed Heaths National Nature Reserve in East Devon.
I spent the month around the solstice 2023 filming in the golden light and gloaming to capture the strangeness of this beautiful place and to explore the complex, contradictory, and occasionally unsettling histories to be found there.
