Abstract

The film DRILL (10 minutes) by Shona Illingworth explores the performative process of the military practice of Drill as an extremely effective weapon of war. The film examines the structures of power, conformity and discipline employed in the process of establishing the corporate unity of the group. Set in the first purpose built military barracks and parade ground in England at Berwick upon Tweed, the film was made working with an army cadet core who recruit predominantly working class young people and prepare them for a military future. Filmed at night, the images and edited sequences reference the mediation of images of conflict through technology, particularly during the Gulf War.
