Something very unusual happened when David Pollard started his presentation at Pecha Kucha Night Vol.58 in January. The background noise of people milling and talking at the bar stopped. Total silence descended. It was something about the first pictures that dominated the screen – a man in a forest with a small structure made out of twigs and branches, a structure natural but also unmistakably a house. It was a “home” in the truest sense of the word. David Pollard’s sincere, straightforward delivery also helped. It was so unusual that even Astrid Klein, co-founder of Pecha Kucha, said how surprised and impressed she was.
