Daniel Fawcett's Splendor Solis (2015) is a twin screen cine-poem that has been compiled from footage filmed over a period of 17 years, featuring everything from home movies, unfinished films, video diaries, experiments and behind the scenes footage. This loosely chronological cinematic wandering charts a journey in which filmmaking is used as a tool for personal exploration and transformation, it is a celebration of cinema, creativity, play and collaboration.
"It is the world of myth and stories that I am interested in, the archetypes and how they manifest through characters and performance. I am interested in the play of making films, the gathering of people together in a sort of ritual of acting out our fantasies and dreams. Filmmaking allows us to bring our inner worlds to life." - Daniel Fawcett
