Isn't It a Beautiful World Video
Isn’t It A Beautiful World is a short film that, through lip-syncing, depicts the traumatising stories of queer performers Soroya, Harry & Kenya and their emotional journey to adulthood.
The film takes the audience on a journey through metaphorical locations to explore themes of loneliness, anxiety, trauma and recovery, all common issues within the LGBT+ community. The performers lip-sync to Delia Derbyshire’s “Falling”, a collection of reassembled interviews of people describing their dreams, arranged in a setting of pure electronic sounds. Locations, including an abandoned school, an old police station and a dilapidated mobile home, depict a mix between childhood ideals and emulate loneliness and isolation.
Developed through The FLAMIN Fellowship with the support of Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN), Arts Council England and Pink Noise.
In 2021, Isn’t It A Beautiful World won the CIRCA x Dazed Class of 2021 prize.
