Description

Memory Palace is a short film grounded in the personal history of artist Martine Syms. Inspired by the classical method of loci, the film presents a woman—singer/songwriter Alice Smith—at work in Los Angeles. Her discovery of a photo album activates memories of physical spaces, which in turn open doors to reminiscences about her own family. By combining found snapshots with documentary-style footage, the film elaborates upon the working methods of Kahlil Joseph, who directed the film with Syms. Joseph's works of lyrical cinema—including m.A.A.d (2014)—employ music and other media as points of departure for non-linear narrative.
