'The Marina Experiment' is the result of over 10,000 polaroid photos and hundreds of hours of home footage that Marina Lutz's father made of the director during her upper class upbringing in 1960s and 1970s Manhattan. A both eerie and infinitely fascinating archive that she herself has now sorted out and reassembled. Her father's transgressive voyeurism is turned against himself, while a courageous self portrait simultaneously grows out of the almost incestuously intimate 'home movies'. The result is a family exposé that can't be shaken off that easily, and which in an intelligent and absolutely unique way raises the question about the right to not be seen - a question that has not become less relevant in the meantime.

This film is not currently online :(

But no worries. There are more just like it in our new program.
