My Tears Are Dry

(Laida Lertxundi, 2009, 4 min)

A film in the three parts of a dialectic. Hoagy Land’s song is played and interrupted as guitar makes sound, two women, a bed an armchair, and the beautiful outside. After Bruce Baillie´s All My Life. The lyrics of the song reference the eternal sunshine of California and its promises. -LL
