Irena Paskali - East t(w)o west

4:46, 2007, Experimental
"It seems that all my life I-m dancing on a wire stretched between two fortresses."
Departure: The trip from East to West. It is always like a stretched rope which is unsecured and you can easily fall and get lost. The rope merges, serves for transport, but it is not secured.

Arrival: I want to present the impact of the political information which simply traps us, limit us. Here are meaningful social-political scenes starting from the past up to today. Politic is everything for us. It is morning, noon, evening, mum, dad.. It is our life-s circulation.

Survival: East arrived in the West. Bare footed. Will he loose himself, or has he found his better road? A question to which I personally do not have an answer, what do you think about that?
