VAFT Screening: Lifelines

Kino Diana, Humalistonkatu 3

I got a dead man's porn. There were so many cardboard boxes of DVDs that my living room was filled with them. The discs were dusty and many were digitized from VHS to DVDs. How much space will all this take on my hard drive.  


I go layer by layer deeper into someone else's fetishes and desires as I download the best videos onto my computer. There are millions of bytes of porn and a stream of images smears my screen.


On the floor is compiled from found footage as well as footage I shot myself. The music is homemade.
