LOVE STORIES

WITH TOPOLOGY

A unique cinematic experience interweaving film, photography and live original music to share the tender, intimate stories so often brushed aside amongst the darkness of homelessness: a woman saved from suicide by her pet budgie; the true love of children and parents long lost; the unexpected love of strangers in the street; a baby born on the edge of homelessness; the love of learning to read and write; the enduring love of music.

These love stories form the basis of a new collaborative work with award-winning journalist and filmmaker Trent Dalton, director of photography David Kelly, internationally renowned guitarist Karin Schaupp, ARIA-nominated quintet Topology and the patrons and staff at Fortitude Valley's iconic 139 Club drop-in centre for Brisbane's homeless and at-risk. 

A contemporary tribute to love, Love Stories reveals that amid the pain, loss, isolation and desperation on the streets there is often warmth and kindness and community and love.

Featuring: 
Live original music by ARIA nominated quintet Topology and internationally renowned guitarist Karin Schaupp
Interviews by award-winning journalist/filmmaker Trent Dalton
Filming and photography by David Kelly
Film editing by Susann Kovacs
