16mm film, Sound
Using the medium of immediacy and emotional reactivity, I shot this ‘performed film portrait’ of my friends on analog film and with fading natural light. I, as the camera operator, engaged and escalated an unrehearsed brawl while filming on my rooftop in Brooklyn. Playing with the boundaries between hostility & closeness and performance & documentation, the film was shot in one-take with unknown consequences. The interaction was captured on 16mm film in an effort to fix the shared connection on archival medium in order to make permanent a relation that is inevitably fluctuating.
