BIRTHDAY NO. 1
RUNNING TIME: 5 MINS
Alexander Peacock outlines his hopes and plan for the coming year on his birthday.
This was to be the first part of an annual series documenting physical, character and dream changes over the course of a lifetime. The series wasn’t continued.
This is one of two films I am ashamed to have made. While it could have had some value had it been continued yearly until the end, the monologue was pure indulgent self-pity. Again, looking back it could have provided an interesting contrast with the coming years but overall I felt it was too much, coming right at the bottom of a fairly self-obsessed series of films.
