Writer: Texto en pantalla: Lynne Sachs
Editor: Apoyo en postproducción: Paul Hill
In 1998, filmmaker Barbara Hammer had an artist residency in a shack without running water or electricity. While there, she shot film and kept a journal. In 2018, Barbara began her process of dying by revisiting her personal archive. She gave all of her material from the residency to Lynne Sachs and invited her to make a film. Through her own filmmaking, Lynne explores Barbara's experience of solitude. She places text on the screen as a confrontation with a somatic cinema that brings us together in multiple spaces and times.
