"...growing up here,
you don't share the kodak moments of other people's holidays.
Even less so when you are queer
- when you know the way you love, the way you see yourself,
is not part of anyone's postcard..."
In Salt In The Wounds T.S. IDIOT reflects on their experience of of love, loss and visibility - a childhood in seaside suburbia, a changing relationship with place and self identity and queering the narrative of being assigned coastal at birth.
The short film was commissioned by Exeter Phoenix for their Two Short Nights Film Festival and is part of an ongoing multimedia body of work.
Thank you to Benjamin Leggett, Ella McDonald, Luke Hagan and the Exeter Phoenix team for all their support.
