There's more than a hint of Assayas' Cold Water layered in here, but regardless this is something completely new, refreshing, and at once political and richly sensual. Play it again!
IWOW: I Walk on Water 2020
Digs further into the nocturnal Harlem portraiture explored in FIELD NIGGAS, but integrates autobiographical and travelogue elements in the lineage of Mekas' personal epic WALDEN while revealing the ethical complexities of subject/artist relations. Deep, dark, loving.
A Family Submerged 2018
Like the narrative base of Assayas' SUMMER HOURS, visual time travel of Mendonça Filho's AQUARIUS, psychic headspace of Decker's MADELINE'S MADELINE & middle aged exploration of Lelio's GLORIA mashed into its own unique perfection. <3
