The film Yes, these Eyes are the Windows (2014) explores the unusual past of 87 Hackford Road, in London’s Brixton district. Basing herself on letters written by Van Gogh and on different accounts relating to the Dutch artist’s brief stay in this terraced house from 1873 to 1874, Saskia Olde Wolbers (b. 1971) weaves a narrative that transports us into a cinematic space of fluid contours, where her free interpretation of the facts mingles with elements of reality.
