This film is about floating between the lines, or perhaps between the pictures. It is a letter to a friend who died much too young. Born to be wild. Lyricist, painter, streetfighter, '68 Maoist. It's about death in a teak rocking chair. About the Unreliable Narrator. All without a screenplay. Or a shot list. With a clear orientation towards the open structure model of topocentric narrative. Towards the holistic dramaturgy of multimedial narration. Reshoot -- remix -- rhizome -- Moebius strip.
