(Interactive CD-ROM/180 minutes/2000)
“This is a story about a woman who is haunted by circling images, trapped in violence. She asks you to enter her experience and her search for release.” This text introduces viewers to an interactive world containing recontextualized fragments from each one of Menkes’s five films, each one starring her sister Tinka Menkes as a deeply alienated woman in powerful resistance against harsh, inhospitable landscapes.
Combining the bold visual language and aesthetic rigor of independent film at its best with the interactivity of new media, the CDROM enables players, as in dreams, to draw from a reservoir of highly charged, deeply connected images and sounds and to re-edit them with intriguing narrative twists.”
