Year of the Rooster

Jonas Ginsburg's rambling video consists mostly of awkwardly shot person-in-the-street interviews in Chicago and Japan on subjects ranging from racial injustice to gay marriage and the Iraq war. But it has the virtue of oddness. Though we hear about police chasing a black kid on his bike and a war veteran's suicide, the framing story implies that we're seeing videos made by a recently deceased gay man on a delusional mission to save the world—their loose organization and offhand nature hint at some impending collapse, perhaps his, perhaps all of ours. 63 min.
