nou (2018)

Emerging from my obsession with Scottish socialist writer Naomi Mitchison’s Memoirs of a Spacewoman (1962) nou (Single-channel video, 18 mins) is a tale of space travel, hypnosis and transformation across time and space, from an alien world to a dentist’s chair in Glasgow, 1981. nou is kind of a partner to and an opposite of Peter (2014), which won Best PKD Short Film at the Philip K. Dick Science Fiction Film Festival, New York, 2017.

nou was first shown at Glasgow International 2018, as part of the always exciting Old Hairdresser’s programme, Old Hair, curated by Rob Churm.

Sound design for nou was by Mark Vernon.
