FLAHERTY NYC: PROGRAM 1: ADRIFT IN DETRITA

This screening is part of: FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS: THE INFINITE CHILD

Film Notes

This is how Thornton encapsulates her remarkable, unclassifiable PEGGY AND FRED project: “Two children, the sole inhabitants of an abandoned world, play and wander and perform for an invisible camera. They are feral, raised by television, and they behave like actors. In the culminating episode an artificial intelligence reveals itself and takes implicit credit for all that has happened before.” Shot over eight years and released over the course of thirty years, it’s a dense collage-work, as plunderphonic and sonically adventurous as early hip hop, both fascinated and repelled by the psychic junkspace created by convergent media. Exhilarating and terrifying in equal measure, the film anticipates contemporary debates about the nature of childhood in the digital era.
