M-dot Report

Australia, 1991 (MIFF 1991, Super 8)

Director: Stephen Ball

A season in Elwood. Looking back on 1991. This is my scrapbook. This is not my home but it's where I live. These are not my words but they're what I say. You see there are all these connections but i don't want to think about it. I must get out of the flat and go down the beach. What's going on around here?
