Shezaed Dawood’s film Piercing Brightness shot in Preston, has been selected as a nominee for the 2012 Jarman Award. Shezaed is¬†one of the 10 artists shortlisted for this year’s prestigious award.

The winner will be announced at a special event on 6 November at the Whitechapel Gallery in London, receiving combined prize money of £10,000 and a commission for Channel 4’s short-form arts strand, Random Acts.

Nominated by experts from across the UK’s contemporary arts sector, the shortlist presented the work of 10 artists who use the film and video medium in a range of diverse and interesting ways. Selected from a record number of artist entries, it offers a comprehensive survey of the work and practice of UK based film and video artists, and celebrates the rich and eclectic array of work emerging in recent years.

Piercing Brightness, a science fiction film, utilizes Preston as a backdrop to interweave elements of documentary and drama from a character-driven narrative involving different communities in the city Рincluding the fastest growing Mainland Chinese population in the UK.

If you get a chance to see it. Do see it.
