Isn't It a Beautiful World

Experimental Film United Kingdom 2021
By: Joseph Wilson

ISN’T IT A BEAUTIFUL WORLD is a short film that, through lipsyncing, depicts the stories of queer performers Soroya, Harry & Kenya and their emotional journey to adulthood. The film takes the audience on a journey through metaphorical locations to explore themes of loneliness, anxiety, addiction and recovery, all common issues within the LGBT+ community. The performers lip-sync to Delia Derbyshire’s “Falling”, a collection of reassembled interviews of people describing their dreams, arranged in a setting of pure electronic sounds.
