The New Freedom Founders: I Am A Conjuror

Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby

2002, 08:30 minutes, colour, English


I Am A Conjuror is a short science-fiction narrative about a couple who have revolutionized the course of medical and scientific history. We observe the couple as they go about their ordinary domestic lives. We watch them getting up, bathing, and talking about what their future holds. Beautifully shot and carefully paced, I Am A Conjuror asks the viewer to reconsider some of the most basic ideas we hold about science, culture and everyday life.

I Am A Conjuror is one segment of a musical video-art science-fiction trilogy entitled The New Freedom Founders.
