NERVOUS TRANSLATION (15+)

Queensland Premiere

Eight-year old Yael lives in a world of imagination, her father out of the country on business and her distant mother always working. She spends her days listening to cassette tape recordings of her father, and baking tiny meals on a toy stove.
Artist and filmmaker Shireen Seno creates a hypnotic portrait of growing up in the Philippines in the 1980s, boldly hinging the story entirely on Yael’s limited childlike perspective. Packed with extraordinarily impressionistic flourishes, unexpected jump-cuts, and an unconventional electronic soundtrack this poetic film is a glorious expression of youthful awe.

“Manages to beautifully capture the oblique half-understanding and fragmented memory that characterises childhood engagement with adult affairs” The Playlist
