The Lost Girl is an immersive film-based installation by Kate McMillan centred around the fictional character of a cave-dwelling girl on the coast of England. Using DH Lawrence's book of the same name as a starting point, the film narrates the experiences of a young woman seemingly alone in a dystopian future, with only the debris washed up from the ocean to form meaning and language. 

The film is set within a future-time which suggests the decimation of civilisation as we now know it, bereft of other people. The character is without language and prior knowledge and must make sense of her existence only through detritus. The film combines various research interests including climate change and the Anthropocene; the role of creativity in forming memory and the consequences of neglecting female histories. 

The project will include an extensive programme of events and commissioning of new writing and music exploring the Anthropocene, women’s histories and memory making.
