‘READ ME! Looking for strangers!’ reads Finnish performance artist Elagoz’s post on Craigslist as she recruits subjects for her daring film. She films a series of unscripted encounters, from the intimate and candid to the bizarre and unexpected with a procession of men, a magician, a sadist pianist, and an exhibitionist. Fearless, dangerously skirting the outer limits of control, Elagoz uses the camera to explore its influence on the intimacy between strangers. An hypnotic collage that moves between innocence and eroticism.

Elagoz travels courtesy Finnish Film Foundation and will attend screenings in CT
