Laila & Lucien - a love remembered

When 13 year old Laila stumbles on a secret kennel beneath the studio of established artist Lucien Reynolds she becomes captive to this man who until age seven was raised as a dog – and in whom the instinct to attack still surfaces at any danger (especially human approach). But a silent traumatic bonding begins to occur and sees Laila question all opportunity to escape. Could she possibly be falling for him? Having fled together to South-West France Laila makes a remarkable discovery concerning a deathly mauling to which Lucien is being linked. Dare she then finally approach Lucien – will he acknowledge her long secret love – or will he devour her? This curious and dark sequence of events becomes the source material for the mosaic-memoir Laila puts together from her own writings, from those of Lucien, and from their conversations – it’s a story told through collage-like collisions, fragmentary conversations, elliptical images, remembered glances . . .
