Auditioning as a modus vivendi: as a way of leaving past lives behind, reimagining oneself, forgetting mistakes. It is what cinema is for Mike Ott and his actor Cory Zacharia — an identity game teasing out the art form’s biographical potential and influence. A dreamt-up storyline unravelling the riddle of what it means to play a role.
After the screenings:
Incomplete versions of works are common in most fields of artistic practice. Can the defined materiality of film embrace notions of art given over to the primacy of an ongoing process?
