    During baking hot Sydney summers, Sam works as a traffic warden on a building site. He comes home each night to his own company. His suburban blonde-brick home is a sanctuary and also a prison. The routines of daily life set on repeat until one day, Sam’s quiet life is interrupted by a drone flying over the back fence.
    PRONE TO THE DRONE is a melancholy comedy about loneliness and connection, as seen through the eyes of a man who has made a life to protect himself from the chaos and accidents of the outside world.

    Daisy joined CuriousWorks in 2016 as an assistant facilitator for workshops in her community, Bidwill. From there she has worked closely with us by facilitating film and photography workshops within her own community and the Fairfield/Liverpool community. Her parents immigrated to Australia from El Salvador in the late 1980s. Their experiences gave her personal insight into the reality of leaving behind family, friends, familiar language and culture to seek safety and new opportunities. As a result Daisy is currently working on a documentary called MI TIERRA which explores the immigration story of her family and the stories of a new community of El Salvadorean migrants. She is passionate about telling the stories of her culture and her community. She has incorporated that by directing a Telenovela inspired web-series called LAS ROSAS that celebrates her Latin American culture and the Western Sydney lifestyle. Her short film PRONE TO THE DRONE (2019) was selected at Sydney FF.
