Every Story Is Imperfect, 2012

HD Video, 9m 0s, Dimensions Variable


Every Story Is Imperfect is an interrupted narrative which deals with the fictionalization of news reports. The film starts as a common story, we hear news on the radio about a missing woman, but soon there are breaks, interruptions, unfinished actions, an unraveling of places and voices. The characters remain emotionally distant and unavailable, wandering around in trains or empty rooms, absentminded. The stories touch on themes such as loss, murder, abuse and rape. The film approaches the inability to communicate when confronted with random acts of violence.
