filming the institutions

filming solely one organised system. observing, not judging. watching the organisation produce subjects, behaviour, values, discourse, a certain speech, a certain regard.
filming the incomplete. the development. filming in sketches, drafts, processes, with an openess to the world. regarding a film as oscillating pores that equally let in and give away. against closure.
not knowing in advance but afterwards.
allowing the words and bodies to speak on their own.
framing but not directing.
