AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'"Some Film Museums I Have Known" is a captivating adventure in performance and film. Fusing solo performance with a spectacular array of live audiovisual effects, the performance follows the story of Paula, a movie-obsessed loner with a bad film script and some big dreams. As Paula's aspirations unravel, the line between cinema and reality begins to blur, and we encounter an action hero trapped in a VHS nightmare, a rickety ghost train, the birth of cinema and a haunted film museum, hungry for souls.

Pilfering elements of horror and fantasy, "Some Film Museums I Have Known" is a darkly comic and fantastical journey into the heart of one woman's cinematic obsession.' Source: http://2010.nextwave.org.au (Sighted 22/06/2012).
