Made in 2008 by Mehrdad Seyf, Shoes is a short film inspired by the city of Cambridge and also by how a city landscape can be altered by a man and a woman walking through identical locations.


The film is informed by the situationist notion of unplanned walks in a city to experience and discover its architecture. It also plays with the notion of ambiguity in gender representation through hundreds of pairs of shoes, city landscapes and walking.


Notable landscapes in the film are: the Mill Road Cemetry, Parkers Piece and Cambridge Junction.
