This Time Last Winter

Sarah Abbott and Ann Verrall

2010, 25:14 minutes, colour, English


A young woman, Iona, cannot remember how the gash on her head got there. When her mother tells her it was inflicted by Iona's indie rock musician boyfriend, Wes, Iona refuses to believe it. To find out for herself, she returns to his funky warehouse apartment - full of love, desire, magic and the location of her last memory. Through interracial relationships and the healing potential of a talking circle, the film explores violence in young relationships and the moment of choice we face when the urge to be violent surfaces.
