Across Lips
Video | hdv | color | 11'43'' | Russia / United Kingdom | 2016
Pairing up jazz improvisation with the vastness of big data, Across Lips attempts to decode what it means to tell a story for a digital age. Framed by the gradual and comprehensive expansion of the Internet Archive, this film questions what it means to truly believe in something.
