Perfect Day by Anna Brownsted

Perfect Day is a series of microdocumentaries about the joy of possibility. The concept for the programme unfolded from an interest in creating an opportunity for people to divulge a pleasurable fantasy to a complete stranger.

The series was made by knocking on doors of local resident’s homes and dropping into businesses surrounding Cambridge Leisure, inviting people to talk about their idea of a ‘perfect day’.  The resulting conversations were often intimate and surprisingly frank, revealing fantasies that range from simple and heartfelt to humorous and grand.
