Voice Over: Sally Richardson

There was an occasion when she fell down, scattering skywards a cloud of ashen parrots. She would have continued lying on the ground and perhaps become her true self, once the flesh melts and the skeleton inside is blessed with its final articulate white, amongst the stones, beneath the hard sky, in this country to which it can at last belong...” (Patrick White, Fringe of Leaves)

Filmed on location in Lancelin, Western Australia

Produced by Steamworks Arts/ dashvisual
