The Impostor (hello goodbye)

Daniel Cockburn

2003, 08:48 minutes, Colour & B/W, english


A circular lament in memory of a eulogy.

"Daniel Cockburn eerily inhabits the delicate tissues of verbal ambiguity... Never has the alternate ending so well eaten its tail as truth cycles in and out of focus, complicated by the multiple voices of the complex yet hapless protagonist." - Lisa Steele, Tranz Tech catalogue
