Artist: Frank Smith
France, 52’, 2014
French with Turkish subtitles

Poet, writer of novels and radio documentaries, Frank Smith’s new work is the second part of a project involving a book. In March 2009, a man murdered ten people before ending his own life, on a journey from Kinston to Geneva, Alabama. Frank Smith interrogates this event by questioning the relationship between fact, narrative, image, and language. He revisits the road travelled that day using Google Earth, trying to make sense of the path of a serial killer, and combining the screening of the film with a live reading of his book.
