Cloher turns that unfiltered lens onto her complicated relationship with Australia in 'Regional Echo', a title inspired by legendary Australian poet Les Murray. In Cloher’s words:
“I grew up in Adelaide, a town in South Australia with a population of one million. In summer you could feel the heat blowing in from the desert. There was a remote feeling of not quite being a country town but not being large enough to be taken seriously as a busy metropolis either. Life had a strange amnesia. No-one taught you to dream big."
On the video: "Our bass player Bones Sloane was raised in Goulburn, a regional centre nestled between Canberra and Sydney along the Hume Highway. Famous for it’s pastoral industry, most people will know it for the Big Merino, the world’s largest concrete sheep. I asked Bones if we could go home to visit his family and film him. I’ve used small town life as a larger metaphor for small time thinking - there’s something in our national psyche that keeps us small.”
