One boys journey to becoming a man
Director/ Producer : Matthew Barton
Through trials, tribulations and recurring masculine tropes this durational film shot over three years charts an odyssey of self-discovery. Roving from homeless shelter to supported accommodation, kinship with animals stands in-place of human connection. First-time employment within hospitality, cleaning tables, washing plates and feigning smiles demands too much social discourse. As an individual with a history of mental fragility and little social acumen Chris finds work as a laborer on building sites, suits us better.
