24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
The Bed and the Street
Protests against austerity measures, read as an expression of resistance to the state, are intermingled with an expression of intimate consonance. A demonstration of connection, this essayistic collage blurs the boundaries between private and public as it reflects on the politics of co-existence.
"What if the revolution started at home, in the micro-politics of hand to hand, of our kitchen life, our bedroom life? If we said no to the old models of family, could we bring together bed and street?" M. Hoolboom, H. Frise
