Shooting: Theater Haus Mitte, Berlin, December 2019
When Olive, my Grandmother died in 1998, I came across a diary she had written between 1945-46.
What she wrote inside exploded everything we thought we knew about how my Father came into the world. Her words conjured into life the daily struggle of a single woman seizing every moment as the bombs rained down on London town. When the bombs fell silent, Olive’s sudden loss of independence was unbearable. In a time before the establishment of the NHS and the Welfare State, being a single, unmarried mother was not desirable. An unplanned pregnancy, a Turkish – Cypriot lover, a red headed American solider and a monkey. This is Olive’s story. I’m not sure she would like me to tell it but I’m going to anyway. Because in these futuristic post war days where words like feminism, immigration and populism divide us so brutally – it is my story too. I must have a very strong streak of foreign blood in me because I have never in my life felt any love for my country. I find in this narrow world, I have to conform to a pattern. My spirit of adventure must be sacrificed. Make me more content to live in a humdrum world. Make me forget all the other things my restless spirit craves. Ever since I was a child, I’ve wanted to travel to find a Utopia, travel on and on until I found it.
Well, dreams die hard.
