“Everything changes it is extraordinary how everything does change.” (Getrude Stein, Everybody’s Autobiography)


After the death of her Grandfather, Pavla unearthed reams of Standard-8 footage that he had taken of his family, friends and surroundings. With the digitised versions, she has created a homage to the joyful beauty of a place and people she knew, but never experienced first hand. The music is my response to the everyday happiness that the film captures and to these forgotten memories.
