Elegy (2001)

3 mins.

Elegy is a film about and in memory of a cat. It depicts her nocturnal space as imagined by us. It occurs partly in our ‘garden’, a dank and decaying back yard full of weeds and wildlife, a place that belonged more to her than to us. Various creatures join in the process of mourning, on and off screen.
