video HD 8min, 2013

The video combines documentary shots of São Paulo, Brazil with performances and spoken text taken from the
script of Aliens written by James Cameron.
The text fragments are spoken by a guard who is guarding a building with his own life 24 hours.
All elements built a collage that stages this city as a memory of films about the future.
The soundtrack consists of modulated field recordings from the city itself only.
