Pockets: What Essential Item Carries You Through Your Day?


(Video link HERE.) In Pockets, a tiny treasure of a video, director James Lees asked random Londoners he met on the street:

What’s in your pocket right now? And what does it say about you?

Lee’s focuses on ONE thing in their pocket, the one most important thing (different from the practical items like house keys, tissues, money etc).  The answers are unexpected, touching, and curiously revealing.

It made us think about what the treasure we carry through our day that makes us feel safe, strong, able, creative…?

What’s yours?
