Memory, fantasy and the body have always been central themes in Steve Reinke's work. His flick takes us on a journey through his universe in an associative essay that deals humorously with complex material. He addresses mortality, sex, faith, the body, the archive, and the embodiment of a life’s work, in a spicy mix of found footage, video animations and home videos. Ironically he ends with a seductive watercolour animation of the story The Honey Sacrifice from Nietzsches's Also Sprach Zarathustra. Programme starter is a remake of an early nineties French video art classic - originally by Pierrick Sorin - where the author gets hot at the sight of his own bottom: a kitchen sink comment on the art of home video-making.
