"In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni" remains the most fulminant argument 
against cinema that we're aware of. At the same time, it's probably the most 
unsentimentally sentimental film we've ever seen, the unlikely culmination of 
dada, punk, negative dialectics, class struggle, revolutionary disobedience and 
severe alcoholism in a single long gesture in which Debord triumphantly admits 
defeat. But then, every once in a while, one should take a fresh look at it, as 
it's not unlikely that over time, some of its ideas will lose or change their 
meaning, while certain others, or entirely new ones, may come to the surface.

Preceded by Edie Sedgwick in Warhol's "Poor Little Rich Girl", it's going to be 
a slightly different story anyway, even though her portrait is not intended to 
serve as the first part of a double feature, rather as an animated wallpaper or 
screensaver. Get a drink, move around, half of it is out of focus anyway. The 
film keeps hovering about halfway between the spectacle (consumimus: the star, 
fashion, the private apartment) and its negation (consumimur: the dropout, 
drugs, the reclamation of dead time), and we hope that we can keep the image 
suspended in that state, rather than make it collapse one way or the other.
