Synopsis

Happy Returns

I bought a scrapbook collection of one woman’s Birthday cards from a house clearance shop a few years ago. She had only kept the cards from her children and grandchildren. It cost me £ 1.99.
The cards chronicle her life through changing design/slogans and written messages. I’ve bought things like this before and they just fill up my shelves.

A poetry film festival kick-started me into making a film using the scrapbook. I looked for a poem to base the cards around but couldn’t find anything suitable, so I tried to write my own.
