A Photo of Me

11mins (2017)

I'm a baby in a 1950s backyard, facing a box camera.
I'm a sleepy child at the Darra "pictures", waking up to a film noir, watching a doomed man.
My mind flickers from past to present, in memories and dreams.
The man dies.
The photo is taken.
I walk home from the "pictures", fast asleep.

Photography and animation are mixed with pieces of a 1950 film noir
as a child sees Death all around.
