A Place to Call My Own

Dennis Day

1985, 09:00 minutes, colour, English


A Place To Call My Own is, in all seriousness, a drama/comedy/nightmare. It is a stylized, highly fabricated narrative which unfolds in a languid, yet sterile fashion. It is intended to evoke and represent feelings of loneliness smothered in "designed" vacancy.
