Claudie seeks advice from an old flame as a new love is born from the embers.

Through a series of dramatised voicemails and phone calls, writer/director Lillian Paterson (Lives in Action, MIFF 2019) crafts a story of growth, grief, and yearning for clarity and closure. Unfolding mostly in its protagonist’s bedroom, Call History contains gravity in its simplicity and offers an intimate stage for a tour-de-force performance by Wentworth’s Zoe Terakes – who is also starring in MIFF 68½ Program Spotlight feature Ellie & Abbie (& Ellie’s Dead Aunt).
