This video brings together a constellation of thought reflecting on reading, cinema, and performance. It is a collage of found footage, shot footage, and cinematic collection, punctuated by performances and recreations. Altering points of view from two characters’ positions, the narrative guides us through these images discussing repetitive actions, rituals, desires and projections.
