Carol Morley's debut short uses the stylistic devices of the melodrama to explore the story of a girl's relationship with her father.
Drama 1993 7 mins
Carol Morley's debut short uses the iconography of the genre of melodrama – the staircase, the father – to explore the story of a girl's relationship with her father, and the impossibility of recreating a time, a place, and a memory. Cross-cutting between the girl protagonist and her father, the film creates a sense of crisis and conflict. As the girl invests her feelings in her surroundings and describes events connected to her father, we are drawn into a world of pain and pathos.
Morley's first directorial credit was her graduation film from Central St. Martin's School of Art.
