Looking for Barbara examines queer readings of the personal archive in relation to family, identity, collective memory, place, self-curation and meaning. Looking for Barbara is an experimental film that explores the relationship to the individual personal archive found in every home. This is the ‘behind-the-scenes’ archive usually found in boxes in attics, garages and cupboards in domestic settings. Set to a backdrop of the filmmaker’s personal archive in the form of Super 8 footage from the 1990s, Looking for Barbara is a short documentary essay which explores the role and significance of the queer personal archive.
