My Kin Blue
When Sarah was young her dad captured hours of cassette tape recordings in the family home.
My Kin Blue visits the archives of this sonic world to trigger a candid physical memoir, where temperaments collide at the shrine of the nuclear family and kindred spirits unravel the nostalgic confusion of childhood.
With an immersive palpitating soundscore by Caleb Wright, carrying the cassette recordings into a trance-like transcension.
