I Dream of Inadequacy


2017, Super8mm and digital animation, 2mins, b&w + colour, sound

Poem by: Michael V. Smith
Film by: Juli Saragosa

The writer Michael V. Smith asked several filmmakers to visually interpret a poem from his latest book “Bad Ideas.” Juli Saragosa combines a textured sound design and hand-processed Super8mm footage of abandoned places with Google Street View and rotoscoped imagery of talking ravens in this rendering of a poem about feelings of shame and inadequacy.
