Director: Howard Walmsley
Producer: Giulia Mattei
Made in collaboration with the Egyptology
Department at The Manchester Museum and the Sue Ryder Charity Shop, the film is located in parallel environments where lost, found or separated objects are encountered, leading towards the questions: where and what is a museum?
The soundtrack is presented as an intermittent radio broadcast, where readings from the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead are interrupted by fragmented ghostly accounts of memories, emotional connections, possession and loss.
The exploratory film acts as a provocation, blurring boundaries between the locations and leading the audience to ask questions about their own relationships with cultural and consumer objects.
