The static footage shows just one thing: a person continuously swimming against the current. Despite swimming at a regular pace, the person stays in place. This image is accompanied by a recitation of a list of the filmmaker’s personal decisions and a description her micro-world, with references to her previous films and curatorial work.

“If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution,” we hear the words of American writer and feminist Emma Goldman, who promoted freedom of expression and the need for joy even amidst revolutionary struggle.
