Crippled Symmetries

Beatrice Gibson
United Kingdom 2015 / 26’

Beatrice Gibson, whose previous experimental film, F for Fibonacci, was screened at the 15th edition of the T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival, reflects this time on the similarity between music and capitalist economies. As was the case with her earlier work, her latest film was inspired by William Gaddis’s satirical 1975 novel JR.
