Where Ideas Come to Die
(USA 2012, HD, 6 Min. 9 Sek., enOF)
A parody of the film noir genre and at the same time a paraphrase of Walter Benjamin’s ideas of the aura. Retired but spirited diva Gloria, upset at finding a young starlet dead in her swimming pool, hires a detective to investigate the girl’s identity. A choreography of light and shadow composed of static vignettes and talking heads, this film revolves around Los Angeles.
