In Memory of Who We Were
This is a film about remembering and also forgetting. It traces the patchy memories of the filmmaker’s catholic boarding school experiences through their dreams, words, emotions and footage. This film is an act of resistance to institutional and church violence and the silence expected of those who live through it.
