Vengeance 1 – 7
(USA 2013, 7 x 15’, English)
Love, betrayal, revenge – the stuff of everyday human relations in real life is often popular substance for television soap operas. Cytter, who recently moved from Berlin to New York, has filmed seven short episodes about her first impressions of her new home and its trivial, mass-media art. Over 50 professional actors at 15 different locations interpret material from ancient Greek dramas as they might be found on 21st century television. Scary.
