Object Interviews Part III (2015)
Patrick Hough

‘Object Interviews’ is a series of three films in which specialists from various fields interpret and discuss a range of film props. Part III considers the perspective of two prop makers, discussing the continuous overlap between the objects represented history and its own history as an object, used in multiple productions. Within these films, the prop takes centre stage as an object in some ways more powerful and significant than the ‘original’ historical artifact, opening up a space for fiction to become part of our understanding of history.
