Monument - Part one (extract)

16mm, 6 mins, 2017

Monument - Part One chronicles a year of transition and coming of age starting from the run up to the birth of my son. The film counterpoints intimate and autobiographical footage with thematic strands that both clarify and mystify the films morphing meanings.
