Relativity explores the elusive nature of truth as three characters give their unique point of view on the same event.

Relativity is a dynamic and humorous account of a fragmenting ‘family’ that utilises the radical potential of DVCAM cinematography to explore the elusive nature of truth. A mother (black British, 26), her daughter (black British, 8) and her latest boyfriend (white, 24) recount a domestic ‘accident’. Three different camera styles and soundscapes emphasise the relative nature of the truths they tell us.
