‘Object Interviews’, is a series of three films in which specialists from various fields interpret and discuss a range of film props. Part I features a keeper of Egyptian Artefacts from the British Museum deconstructing their historical significance while Part II features a cultural theorist uncovering the unconscious impact of a prop on the viewer through the framework of psychoanalysis. Part III considers the perspective of two prop makers, discussing the objects in relation craft, construction and the continuous overlap between the objects represented history and its own history as an object, used and reused in multiple productions. Within these films the prop takes centre stage as an object in some ways more powerful and significant than the original historical artefact, opening up a space for fiction to become part of our understanding of history.
