The story told by American artist Andrew Norman Wilson may appear incoherent and meandering at first. The spectator has to find himself the concealed relationships between pictures, archival photographs, films, advertisements, computer animations and fragments of stories told by two enigmatic protagonists, one of whom seems to be losing his senses.The other one is famous George Eastman, a man who made photography available to the masses. Nevertheless, this experimental semi-biographical documentary by Wilson is far from chaos. It is a fascinating reflection on the status of images and people in the society of late capitalism.
