Night Sounds will be based on a performance shot at a rock pool at Treyarnon Bay, Cornwall, where a group of women will sing at dusk and dawn.
Night Sounds will be filmed on 16mm colour film in 360°, with the camera in the middle of the rock pool, rotating to show the performers arranged around the edge. These scenes will be interspersed with images of limbs aligning with natural forms, seaweed and rock forms. These passages are symbolic of regaining joy, of being back in the world, aligning with nature, rather than being at odds.
The film and its future screenings are motivated by my experiences of infertility and childlessness and aimed at people who are childless by circumstance, to give a voice to unheard experience and support moving to acceptance and joy.
In development stage.
