Still Static - Film - 22min - 2022

présenté dans le cadre de l'exposition Panorama 24


Following a traumatic event, an older couple develops a mysterious disease - their skin is radiating with a glow of outdated media.
Both, a cameraman who documented an horrific event and a woman who obsessively watch the same tape, are trapped in a loop of memories as they slowly fade away like a worn-out magnetic tape.
