Leaving Lost is a short film examining Canberra artist Derek O’Connor’s relationship with the suburb of Fyshwick, where his studio is located.
Serving as both a portrait of an individual and a place, Leaving Lost investigates the complex relationships we have with our environment and the locales where we live and work. Using a combination of digital and super-8 film, the film explores history, memory, creativity and solitude. Firmly grounded in Canberra, the film is also a unique documentation of some of the city’s artistic community, featuring appearances by local artists Vivienne Binns and Richard Larter.
Directed and Edited by Frazer Bull-Clark.
Featuring: Derek O'Connor, Vivienne Binns & Richard Larter.
