A film by Stuart Cottle and Steven Hazleton.
The film addresses the issue of the reliance that many people have on technological data, to hold precious sentiments such as memories, and the ignorance we have towards the fragile nature of this data. The film shows fragments of a young girls life in an unconventional style that averts from the traditional voyeurism of conventional cinema. Throughout the production of this film we have attempted to explore a range of processes through limitation and thus produce a work that is unique in style.
