AFW Screening: My Life Without Steve

May 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Arena Project Space, 2 Kerr St
Fitzroy, VIC 3065 Australia

My Life Without Steve focuses upon the theme of romantic loss and obsession, as a woman attempts to come to terms with the end of a relationship. It is not, however, a conventional drama, but a narrative formed by a collage of images and sounds. Quotes, songs, diary jottings and reflections are combined with images of time passing in a Balmain room with a view across Sydney Harbour.
