      Territories of Eile is a short film from the Eile Project. Eile Project (2016-ongoing) is a transdisciplinary investigation of the UK/Irish border and its complex entanglement of colonialism, migration, border-imperialism and geopolitics. The project creates site-responsive performances on the border, from which sculptures, soundscapes, films, texts develop that enact ‘border-fictioning’: a resistant practice to oppressive manifestations of nation-state borders. These live performances capitalise on the forces of the earth to enact what Grosz, Povinelli and others refer to as ‘geopower’ as a form of resistance to colonial practices.
