Welcome

It’s all about memory.

How do we make sense of the world around us?
Are we really just seeking ways to connect across the
ever-expanding simulacrum of modern life?
When does the past converse with the future?
Where can I see a little bit of everyone, and everything?
And how can we share moments together?

Short answer: I haven’t a clue.

But I think that our creations – our arts – bring us closer to
understanding each other.
Teach us how to empathise with one another, and preserve
our stories.

Those are the reasons I love films.
And books, performance, craft – they safeguard
our memories, and our experiences.

You’ve got to love that.

This way for a selection of works from elsewhere.
