You can can check out ‘Buff’ - a short film by Stephen Burke, on Vimeo from today!! Over the last three years, Stephen created the film in collaboration with Irish film maker Sean Clarke. The 16 minute feature is set in Dublin city and investigates the style and psychology behind buffing in Ireland.
Buffing is the name given to describe the removal of the painting over of graffiti. It is a daily task undertaken by councils, private home owners and contracted companies around the world. Through many years of investigation, and documentation, the film ‘Buff’ is developed from the perspective that buffing can be identified, and be critically engaged with, as a creative art form itself.
