Threadbare (Excerpt)

16mm Film, Color, Sound, 05:15, 2010/2014 USA
A fever-dream processes childhood memories of medical exploitation. The clinical gaze of the dream holds tightly to the profitable conjuring that vulnerable bodies make possible. Patients unravel into material to support a billion-dollar pharmaceutical industry driven by commercial interests and the fear of our fragile physiology.
