Hey Angels is a documentary. It is a fiction. It is a feature. It is a collection of short films. It is a multi screen installation. It is a collaboration. It is an auteurist self-exploration. Hey Angels is a work that takes the form of a dream, a memory, ever shifting, ever changing, with both its meaning and interpretation contorting and changing often as its form.
Distant female voices recall memories of their time living in an isolated community in an unnamed valley in the Yorkshire moors. Full of mistakes, hesitation and faltering, and with little explanation as to the connections between each story, the narration allows the audience to construct the relationships between the stories and images they are presented with.
We listen to them in the midst of a series of constructed realities, self-contained memories, contrasting archive and staged footage, filmed on VHS, Super 8 and iPhones. Marked by loss, isolation and yet ultimately optimism, Hey Angels is a document of the inherent subjectivity in memories and storytelling, ultimately questioning whether differentiating between truth and subjectivity matters.
