1 min 39 sec (excerpt)Single channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

“Punk is so out of style, those guys must be at least 25”.

"An autobiographical tale of middle class punks growing up in the suburbs during the late 1980s. Making an animation using toys. My great great grandfather started the Kirkcaldies department store, luckily he was on my mother’s side so I managed to shake the name."
