Prayer for a Junk Mail (2022) is a short film exploring sympathetic, over emotive, and intimate responses to unanswered messages in my junk mail box. These automatic emails come from activist groups whose causes I have previously supported. Structured as a surrealist manifesto and inspired by author Jorge Luis Borges, the written responses open up reflections on today’s function-driven society and evoke the dream as a mean to solve fundamental questions of life.
Film part of the ‘100 ways to Say We’ project co-produced by Goethe Institut / Performing Architecture and Theater Neumarkt in collaboration with Sale Docks. The online platform was launched few months back in the context of the Architecture Biennale of Venize.
