Prison with Songbirds
(2022)
NL / UK | Documentary & Fiction | 12' | Digital & 35mm | 1.66:1

An unseen narrator tells his experience of wrongful imprisonment in an unnamed country and his random release. Based on a letter sent to Amnesty International, by my father, and a surreal interview given about it. ‘Prison with Songbirds’ is a documentary and fiction hybrid in which dream-nightmare and digital-35mm collide.
