Summary In three films by Curious, performance artists Leslie Hill & Helen Paris explore the volatile, capricious nature of change. Lost Property is a haunting journey through the catacombs of shopping bags, umbrellas, suitcases and 'miscellaneous' that comprise London's Lost Property vaults at Baker Street. An enigmatic woman, whose favourite words are adhesive, sellotape, super glue and safety pin, tries to come to terms with the difference between being lost and being left. In Lost & Found, Black Country locals reflect on their sense of place, the breakdown of community life and express their hopes for the future in an area of significant regeneration. 'I can remember sitting on the wall chatting to the neighbours for hours. But now it's not the same and you can't leave your doors open.' In Red Lantern House, a recently arrived American notices a woman living in a partially demolished house on a massive development site in Shanghai, a row of welcoming red lanterns strung proudly over doorway. This film captures the final days of the Red Lantern House and the beginning of an unlikely friendship.
