Regression

A portrait of the artist as a not so young man. The film-maker attempts to enter the digital age by making a new video version of his 1978 film '7P'.

'Regression makes time a focus of his humour. As he recreates a film he did twenty-one years earlier, he tapes each of the twelve days of Christmas, getting progressively younger as he replays the chorus of the accompanying song' Chris Kennedy, programme notes for screening at 'Pleasure Dome', Toronto, 2001.

Awards: 'Prize of the International Short Film Festival', Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, Germany, 2000. Special Mention by the International Jury, Cork International Film Festival, Ireland, 2000.
