Abstract

We are delighted to publish the second work of Volume 7, Jill Daniels’ My Private Life II – an autobiographical feature documentary which focuses on her parents’ relationship, from their early married life, through their divorce and subsequent decision to life together again. This brave and, at times, uncomfortable project uses the device of the split screen triptych to juxtapose interviews and archive photographs, alongside interior and exterior shots of the houses she grew up in and imagery of the construction of a scale model of a typical family home. The accumulative effect works to expose painful family secrets, acknowledge the often contested act of remembering and trouble the domestic sphere.
