A performance film that navigates expectations of both the audience and the makers. A series of false starts. Dub treatment on the laugh track. "Looking good up front here. How you all doing tonight? This is my kinda crowd."
Can the liquidity of writing be grounded in the material of film-image? How to distill an experience from the toil of one’s everyday? The relentless flow of life passing through…
A film poem celebrating the dualities present in the everyday. As I go, impressions and questions present themselves. The intimacy of looking at my child, the ethically loaded gesture of capturing images or the entangled encounters across generations. They confront me and they comfort me. This was always meant to be a reflection on making with one’s own hands.
Made at the network labs Labo BxL (Brussels), L’Abominable (Paris) and MTK (Grenoble)
