More Info Works / Hammu


Hammu is the name of the hamster I had as a child. It seemed to be my only friend and some-one to identify with. One day it disappeared and was never to be seen again. That marked the end of my childhood, of unreserved trust and commitment. This film is a visualisation of memories I had about this event, of obsession and loss.
