BIG KISS, GOOD NIGHT

Dominic Gagnon, 62', 2012, Canada

“My anger protects me!” Sat in his car, with a long beard and dishevelled hair, Joetalk100 talks to the camera. He has just got out of prison. He has diabetes. He keeps drinking cold coffee and smoking ciggies. A product of Italian immigration to the United States, he makes videos in which he expresses his indignation at the country’s downward spiral. A pressure-cooker on the point of exploding, Joe talks, surrounded by comments which, like the chorus of a classic tragedy, accompany him towards his destiny. Someone writes to him: “Maybe you just need a hug”. Gagnon, curious and amused, observes his questioning. (Luciano Barisone)
