Shot on Super-8 in downtown Newcastle NSW, Various Difficulties is an exercise in communication with the past and its ghosts.  Featuring a soundtrack by Sydney based musician John Encarnacao the film is a fragment of a larger amorphous project titled Dissolution that seeks to uncover the submerged psychic fabric of the city. There are memories here, largely obscured and forgotten but still visible to those who look. Various Difficulties screened as part of the Sound Summit Cinema Loops program  at various venues in Newcastle, 27/9 – 30/9/12.
