Abstract

'Last night, locked in...' is a narrative film made during the Covid-19 lockdowns of 2020 and 2021. Made as a response to, and reflection on, domestic confinement's impact on time, memory and identity, it employed an embedded filmmaking approach using only the equipment, props and actors available on location. As a response to the disorientation of temporal markers of memory and identity, the filmmaker investigated how narrative fiction could decontextualise confinement's estrangement of time to allow the author, protagonist and viewer a shared experience in discovering new meanings and understandings that could facilitate a re-ordering of memories and (re)stabilisation of personal identity.
