The film describes the interior of a house. Outside, the sun parches the landscape. A woman’s voice slowly reveals and narrates a series of memories from the past. There is a middle aged woman whom the narrator slowly focuses on. She is unnamed but she embodies the idea of something sad and passive which to the narrator represents womanhood. Filmed from 35mm slides on 16mm reversal Fuji film with in camera fades and pans.“It was wonderful to see First Memory. I was very struck by the way that the images conjured up by the text seem to superimpose themselves over the images on the screen – so vivid and very moving” Laura Mulvey, 2016
