Betrayal in a Valentino Frock

FLOODING IN THE GARDEN Film Festival- Forest Collective, Victoria, December 2014. 

Red lipped haute couture, bursting at the seams.
A woman is cocooned in the veils she keeps. Or is she?
Does she watch from within or tangle & betray herself?

Video Production by Justin Batchelor
Music by Eve Klein
Visual Art by Sarah Lloyd


Filmed over 2 afternoons at ‘art HALL’, Learmonth, VIC., Australia, 2014
