Looking for the Overlooked

Film maker Carol Stevens, joins us in ‘Analysing Practice’ to talk about her work. (Tuesday 6th Nov 3.45pm)

She describes her practice as: ‘representing place and personal memory through narrative. I am interested in looking for the overlooked. This can take the form of stories, memories, working processes, atmosphere, sounds, traces that are an intrinsic part of a place but not always visible. My work focuses on small worlds that communicate complex, family based issues. The work often shows small fragments of a bigger story – a sense of intrigue by not quite exposing the full extent of the situation or story. Each of my films has used locations that resonate with particular emotions.’
