Dau:añcut // Moving Along Image
In 2014, an unknown man in Ukraine tattooed a portrait of a relative of a filmmaker in his traditional Native American regalia. Stitched together from footage of the search for this man, the film interrogates what happens when the control of an image is lost and the time’s circular ironies.
