15 minutes video
A man eats dinner and plays solitaire as images of Eastern Europe revolve around him to the sounds of an audio effects record. Footage shot throughout Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic at the end of the twentieth century echo with ghosts of the past as old and new architectures are simultaneously (re)constructed. The “master narrator” counts the illusion of order as the main character slips in and out of drag.
“A beguiling journey into the Eastern European imaginary, this video conjures an enigmatic vision of place and sexuality.” Mix NYC
