haunt me,
recite it again

2011

A voyage into an elderly woman's stream of thought, reciting her memories about living in the Philippines.

'Haunt Me, Recite It Again' juxtapose text, images & sound to call on unformulated history and explore subterranean individual & cultural embodied memories, knowledge and experience. Utilising silence and perspective blurring between scenes to express the artist's process in locating memory between the gaps of recorded history.

“I will have spent my life trying to understand the function of remembering, which is not the opposite of forgetting, but rather its lining. We do not remember, we rewrite memory, much as history is rewritten. How can one remember thirst?”

Chris Marker
