The Mire Archive (15)
Filmed in Hereford and Monmouth. A film made by and with the filmmakers’ family, reflecting the familial narrative of the film.
All things buried will resurface. A terminally ill archeologist’s world is thrown into turmoil when forced to exhibit the 2000-year-old body he excavated with his former student lover. As he desperately connects with his son, his relationship with his daughter deteriorates. He concocts an ‘archaeology of the living’ and enlists the help of a young guard at the university who has his own reasons for an intense devotion to the body. His final address at the opening of the exhibition becomes the haunting soundtrack to his final act of redemption.
