Some things about water: 2004, 20:00, digital video
Excerpt from 20 minute video, 2004, SD video
In this personal essay film the narrator reflects on the damage in her loved ones' lives resulting from "bad ideas" and on the dissatisfaction experienced by the people around her with life, with each other, and with themselves.
In editing the video I experimented with different degrees of representation, mostly using street-verité imagery edited with no particular or even referential relationship to the imagery evoked by the voice-over narrative. In a certain section of the film, I used appropriated and recut movie scenes as a dual-narrative with the voice-over. In another section, an appropriated movie scene was edited with a direct intention to illustrate the audio narrative.
