About this submission

Reflecting on memory, nostalgia, and transformation, Last Time is an experimental archive-film, and a tribute to the ephemeral nature of queer life. Nan Goldin said, ‘I don’t believe in the single portrait. I believe only in the accumulation of portraits as a representation of a person’ and likewise the film accumulates a vast surge of documentation in order to portray a specific community at a certain point in time, most of the footage having been taken over lockdown. Elliptical and fragmented, the community is represented through a collage of literal and metaphorical images, hoping to construct a newly imagined archive.
