Event Details

Video artist, James McColl, wants to tell you about his Nan. He wants to show you the life of this strong, self-reliant, eighty-six year old woman. He wants to celebrate age.

Having discovered the family archive of super-8 home movies, James has retraced the different parts of his grandmother’s life; stitching together family holidays, gatherings and present day interviews. He explores her coming to grips with deteriorating health, and how she reflects upon life through these gathered memories.

This is a celebratory film. It is not mourning the end of her life but sharing her thoughts with the privilege of hindsight. This found footage documentary is an attempt to talk about our cultural fear of ageing.
