some recollections of mortality 8' HDV 2012 UK.
English. subtitles: French, translations in German, Spanish.
Short Film, 8 mins
P: mmmmmfilms
Direction: Montenegro, Olivares, Fisher. Birmingham, UK.

The film explores the presence and absence of the body in relation to contemporary film and popular media cultures. The body is subjected to a criminal investigation in which the global concerns of the economy are placed on the individual. The relation between narrative, text and visual imagery is revealed through a portrait of contemporary suburban lifestyle.
The global crisis acts as the 'perfect crime' - everyone is guilty. The film examines how our lifestyles lead us to be complicit in the global perfect crime, a crime in which we are all suspects searching for a witness, an other. The film was made through a site-specific collaborative process in which the three artists erase the idea of the author to create a fictional subjectivity.
