A dreamy and thought-provoking portrait of counterculture philosopher and performance artist Fred Nemo, legendary for being "The Dancer" for the band Hazel ('90s Sub Pop stars from Portland, Oregon). Process-intensive analog film techniques, literary references and provocative performances conspire to shine a flickering light on this enigmatic character.
