Plural Authorship Collective (in postproduction)
Two best friends take a boat to America to deliver a “groundbreaking performance”. Once on the road their optimism starts to crack as they come face to face with each other’s insecurities.
The film follows the turbulent road trip of the artists Aay and Zed, as they tour a new performance piece across America. They capture the daily joys and tensions of their friendship and collaboration through the lenses of their phones as they struggle to live up to their mantras of feminist empowerment. Dressed in matching outfits there is no escape from each other or from the expectations they set for themselves as artists. Their delusional optimism soon fades as they are faced with each other’s insecurities and have to fight to stay connected.
