A couple of hours before Mum handed over the keys of our sold family home, my sister followed me around the empty house and backyard filming long, single-take, improvised shots without any dialogue. With its low-fi aesthetic and dreamlike soundscape, this work represents the places we perhaps run from, but which remain embedded and murky within us.
