Awarded Best Short in the Optical Sound category at Flatpack Festival no.12 (2018)

 

UK artist Lucy McLauchlan was invited to New Zealand in April 2017 for the Paradox street art festival hosted by Tauranga Art Gallery and curated by Oi YOU! This short film by Matt Watkins documents behind the scenes of Lucy's process and environment while featuring the sounds of two unique New Zealand musicians; Fis (Oliver Peryman) & Rob Thorne (Ngāti Tumutumu) with "Front Ear", a collaborative track taken from their LP "Clear Stones" released on Subtext Recordings.
