David O’Donnell: Moved by Memory in Picture Wheel

Written and directed by David O’Donnell, and produced by David O’Donnell, Alex Russell and Tom Fox-Davies, the short film Picture Wheel posits a world where we're not just haunted by our past, we carry it with us in the form of photos of our memories affixed to our heads by a bizarre device, the images of our regrets ever hovering in our field of vision. It's an example of greyscale surrealism reminiscent of Terry Gilliam's Brazil, following an office worker who cannot escape the memories of his ex. Following the film's recent premiere at Cinequest Film Festival, we caught up with O'Donnell for a quick word.
