A young man’s letter to his mother, sent home to New Zealand from England during the First World War. London’s Royal Parks are the picturesque setting for revisiting empire, tourisms and longing in this hybrid film that features the artist’s grandfather’s photography from his enlisted travels.

Album premiered at Whānau Mārama: New Zealand International Film Festival 2020.
