A film commssioned by Edinburgh International Book Festival, 2021, in response to Shola Von Reinhold's novel LOTE (2020). Made in homage to Curtis Harrington's film The Wormwood Star (1956), a portrait of the artist Cameron, the film finds Shola in the attic of Preston Hall, Midlothian, undergoing a transportation. A section of LOTE is read over churning abstract liquids, and finally an escape.
