Cars are private spaces in public, a crucial intersection of personal space. In this work, an unidentified woman drives an early 90s model Subaru Forester across Melbourne at night. For the most part, the act of driving is silent, passive, private and inactive. It is the authors’ intention for the work to mirror these familiar feelings inherent in an everyday activity, drawing its viewers in and challenging them to inject new meaning and dimension into a seemingly banal and quotidian act.
The filmmakers would like to thank Sherwin Akbarzadeh (DoP), Derry Sheehan (Producer) and Erica Dunn (Lead) for all their help on this project.
