ABOUT THE FILM
Scrap is Joey Knox’s graduate film from Screen and Media at RMIT. Coming from a cinematography background, Joey wanted to explore storytelling through visuals and without dialogue.
“With this film I sought to draw from the familiar surroundings of my upbringing to create an unfamiliar dystopique timeline, a cast of locals creating the scene. In this tattered scrapyard within which she lives, I wanted to portray a dangerous adult community through the eyes of a child, who – on the cusp of adolescence and adulthood – is a singularity within her world.”
