Our Town

Libby Hague

2001, 09:10 minutes, colour/B&W, English


A child’s society - its vitality, violence and distance from the adult world is underscored by the suicide of a friend’s mother. The slippage between the child’s and adult’s world is personified by a technique of static animation in which hundreds of watercolour, ink drawings are superimposed on an out-of-register real world, composed of a nine minute dolly shot of a suburban housing project.
