Work title: NOW vs NOW vs NOW, 2012, 5:52
NOW VS. NOW VS. NOW confronts two past moments in the history of political film, asking what it could have meant to collectively reclaim the moment in post-war communism. Whose is the now, when the subjects whose liberation is at stake, are stuck on photographs since they have been killed? What happens to now-time, when the traumata of the collective past cannot be overcome?
