There will be two screenings tonight in New York City for a film by Shelly Silver titled “in complete world.” Details below…
Near Sighted-Far Out/The Third Festival of Video Art
OPENING NIGHT VIDEO DUMBO
Our social and political landscape has changed dramatically, and unfortunately, during the Bush administration of 2001â€“08. As a result, the November presidential election seems to be one of the most highly anticipated, eagerly awaited, and critically important in years. in complete world is a feature-length documentary made up of street interviews done throughout NYC. Mixing political questions (‘Are we responsible for the government we get?’) with more broadly existential ones (’Do you feel you have control over your life?), the film centers on the tension between individual and collective responsibility.
in complete world can be seen as a user’s manual for citizenship in the 21st century, as well as a glimpse into the opinions and self-perceptions of a diverse group of Americans. It is a testament to the people of NYC in this new millennium, who freely offer up thoughtful, provocative and at times tender revelations to a complete stranger, just because she asked.
