Cinematography by Scott Ballard
Written, Directed, Produced & Edited by Dicky Dahl
The Curio tells the story of a recent divorcee struggling to re-invent himself amidst the comparatively young social scene of a new town to the point of becoming, at least by his own perception, an object of curiosity. The film weaves scripted material, footage from ‘family films’ and scenes from a fictional documentary that interviews family and friends into a comedic yet poignant portrait of one man’s existential identity crisis. Through The Curio’s quest for newfound purpose lies a greater exploration of society’s definition of “success” and the cost of bending that definition to meet one’s terms for self-fulfillment.
