Description

Essay film, I guess. Footage is found, no copyrights (except for the trailer that belongs to Summit Entertainment and the black and white clip near the end is from Hans Richer's Ghosts Before Breakfast). The interstices are crops from Walter Benjamin's essay The Author as Producer. The voiceover of part I is an eraser of Roland Barthes' essay on the Paris flood of 1945, you can find the full thing in Mythologies. The voiceover of part II is an eraser of Judith Butler's manifestation in Occupy Wall Street on Oct 23 of 2011, you can find the full thing in Youtube. So none of this is really essential, only disclaimers for the critics. Lots of love, enjoy.
