Still from All About Lucy


All about Lucy is a quirky and humorous exploration of the connections between the oldest known human skeleton, a chimpanzee who thought she was human, the film Out of Africa and the story of Adam and Eve.

It uses a collection of words and images drawn from Renaissance painting, scientific drawing, hand-drawn 'funnies' and Genesis and gives us an unusual insight into primordial sexuality blending the scientific with the visual.
