Back Jury's Choice 1: María Palacios Cruz: Private Lives

Points of Departure

Alia Syed UK, 2014, 16', DCP

“The objects and places we cannot leave behind create the tapestry that is Points of Departure. Exploring themes of personal and collective memory through my relationship to the city of Glasgow, a voice over describes a tablecloth I retrieved whilst clearing my elderly father’s house. The film attempts to unravel the threads of memory held within this mundane item and to find an image within the BBC archive that relates to my memories of growing up in Glasgow.” (Alia Syed)
