In Memorabilia, a daughter mourns the loss of her father, a passionate collector of space memorabilia, as she falls under the sway of the 'flown' space objects in her inheritance.
Memorabilia was created during co-directors Ceridwen Dovey and Rowena Potts' tenure as Powerhouse Research Fellows in 2022. It draws on the museum's incredible collection of space ephemera to create an evocative hybrid documentary which blends fact and fiction to interrogate how and why flown space memorabilia comes to be collected and stored for posterity, and why these objects exert such a strong pull on the human imagination.
