too soon too late, single-channel video, 2009
too soon too late is an experimental documentary that explores the notion of family memory loss, the denial of our own dysfunction and hardship. Hushed stories, hidden letters and forgotten home movies interweave to reveal moments between the smiles. In this work I examine my own family through interviews with my father and his five siblings about the life and struggles of my grandmother. too soon too late reworks found footage from the 1950s-1960s to form a collective memory and poses questions about the causes of mood disorders in women of this era.
