Over The Bones, 30 min, commissioned and funded by Arts Council England.
Distributed by LUX:
Over the Bones depicts the meeting of two intentionally incongruous characters, a young singer and an older truck driver, revealing the surreal effect they have on each other’s lives. When the driver gives the singer mouth to mouth resuscitation after witnessing an accident in a swimming pool, a chain reaction is set in place with unexpected consequences for both protagonists. Following the structure of a road movie the narrative is revealed through voice over, narration, live interviews and musical performance. The power of song is premised as a catalyst for personal development. Whether the characters are actors and story unfolding is true remains ambiguous.
