    James N. Kienitz Wilkins’s film tracks a small network of artists and their associates, skipping between scripted performances and conversations in which real people play versions of themselves. A highly inventive look at creative life, labor, and technology, the film is a discordant rush of layered images—contrasting views, superimposed—set to a shifting radio soundtrack.

    Kienitz Wilkins says his goal was to “reflect our multifaceted contemporary world where there is no one right way to look or listen: we are perpetually barraged by a sea of information, histories, and the promises of absolute connection, while remaining fundamentally alone.”

    A discussion with the filmmaker follows the screening.

    This event is co-presented with the Film Studies Center at the University of Chicago.
