Details

It was only in the twentieth century we needed papers to have an identity. Kafka’s Joseph K scrabbled in his pocket for something better than a bicycle license to prove who he was in the brave new world where official documents separate those who belong from those who are not allowed to belong. The borders of the new nation state offered frames for subterfuge. What happened on one side of the border had to be understood on the other. In the century when we invented aviation, when we invented cinema, in an age when we can move more and see more than any other point in history why have we become so watchful and so performative? I Am A Spy is a film that observes this watchfulness.

Sarah Wood has been working for the last fifteen years in artists’ film as a curator and artist filmmaker. She was born in the UK and lives and works in Cambridge.

Disc 2 featurette includes the new film What Thoughts Are Not Being Thought? directed by Olivia Laing & Sarah Wood.

First Edition of 50 copies.
