Filmed and Edited by Moira Sweeney

Arts Council of Great Britain Film Award; Cork Film Festival Merit; Honorary Screening, Retina Film Forum

Fragments of country-sides, objects, houses, interiors, but also almost bodily gestures of tenderness between camera and people. A dream-reality is created, the mosaic of a life, a diary of electrical shadows, a pure form of cinema. – Alf Bold, Berlin Film Festival
