I My Bike

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

A cinepoem that traces the conflict between urban space and the body from a child's compulsion to stare into the sun to an adult's obsession with dying and moving towards the light. Guided into a trance state by an unseen therapist, a disembodied voice reveals his loss of innocence upon moving to the city, his increasingly fragmented state of being and longing for death. The past and present collide within a round portal containing fleeting images of 1905-era Market Street, San Francisco over a dense sea of modern day bicyclists.
