It looks at four distinct imaginations of homes and bodies across examples of buildings made over the period of a century. The film explores these spaces and the bodies that were imagined to inhabit them through the evocation of the cinematic and aural collective memory of a nation reinventing itself. The film is therefore shot on multiple formats - 16mm film and video, in both colour and black and white, along with archival footage from state propaganda films and mainstream cinema."
