RED LINE LULLABY
Yehuda Sharim | USA 2020 | 14 Min. | OmeU
In a temple where safety appears as a mystery, and one dreams of telling stories of insurrection, a young woman moves through (sub)urban landscapes into the heart of the United States. All around her, the Coronavirus, riots, and Black Lives Matter demonstrations shape the mind-scape. Space and time begin to merge. Cops turn into baseball mascots, young women wear electronic handcuffs, people are hunted like animals, and souls are haunted as ghosts.
RED LINE LULLABY is a visual and linguistic creation of an abstract poem about Latinx women in the US, a country in agony, and the (im)possibility of belonging in America.
