Memoirs of a Plague
Memoirs of a Plague (2012) 77'/52'
Looking Glass Pictures, Screen Australia, National Geographic
During 2008, 2009 and 2010 I travelled to Egypt, Ethiopia, Tanzania and western NSW in Australia to record humans interacting with locusts.
The war against locusts is as old as human civilisation. Memoirs of a Plague shows the dramatic encounter between man and locust. Do we live outside or within nature, and who is hunting who? Memoirs of a Plague is a feature documentary that was screened at IDFA, Margaret Mead and Hotdocs.
