Sarah Wood works primarily with film and found footage to create new works. Her current work uses mostly documentary footage to 'focus on the meaning of the archive'. I Want To Be A Secretary won best film at the Halloween Film Festival 2007 and her film, The Angel of History, launched the first edition of The Branchage Film Festival in the Jersey War Tunnels.
Three Minute Warning follows the parrallel histoies of cinema and aviation, looking at how they reshaped the twentieth century and the fantasies of freedom and control that they produced.
It is narrated by the artist and features images and footage found in a variety of archives. The film is a fast-forward history of the real imapct of blue sky thinking. In an interview with I-D Magazine she describes Three Minute Warning as a film about 'bombs, breasts, women and war'.
