Paper long abstract:

(password: voice2020)

During lockdown I was inspired to use random footage which I have accumulated on my phone's memory alongside bits and pieces of many people's words extracted from voice messages they've shared with me, to create a short drama which touches upon the themes of everyday nostalgia, of desire to travel and to meet as well as to explore possible futures within diverse geographies.
