Over The Bones

Over The Bones | UK 2008 | 16mm | 30 min

Following the structure of a road movie, Over The Bones is a visual essay fusing documentary and fiction to detail the meeting of two intentionally incongruous characters, a singer and a lorry driver. The narrative is revealed through voice over, interviews and musical performance. Witnessed in their separate working environments the characters’ stories slowly converge until they meet through an accident in a swimming pool that has surreal consequences for both. (Commissioned & funded by the Jerwood Foundation & Arts Council England)
