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.
Elegy has toured the UK widely as part of an Arts Council supported programme of short films based around the theme of the garden curated by Peter Todd.
