Experiencing Interruptions?

Displacement

Age-old public transport ferries travel to and from Sydney Cove. Gigantic cruise ships that once docked at the Sydney Cove Overseas Passenger Terminal are conspicuous by their absence. The Australian Aboriginal Gadigal People of the Eora Nation occupied Sydney Cove for tens of thousands of years before those aboard the first British fleet of 1788 chose it as the site for establishing a penal colony.

Director Statement

I attempt to explore the visual language of the moving image with every film I create. A subject that re-occurs in many of my films is the passage of the urban experience within urban localities.
