Dwelling at the margins : an exegesis of the film Boundaries

Pullen, Naomi Margaret (2006) Dwelling at the margins : an exegesis of the film Boundaries. Masters by Research by Creative Works, Queensland University of Technology.


" Dwelling at the Margins" is an exegesis of the short film Boundaries. Boundaries is a journey into the world of marginalised young people in inner urban Brisbane seen through the eyes of a the female main character with an eye for gentle beauty. The film forms the first part of the research and in the exegesis the ideas unfold that were behind the making of the film and that emerged further through its production and audience reception. The exegesis discussion centres on the major aspects of the film which are visual representations, female narratives and the themes of home and dwelling. Boundaries is a political film that looks from the edges of society. The exegesis seeks to explain the ideas behind this intention.
