A performative documentation of Clara Winter's process of spending film funds as she attempts to make a site specific project in Mexico without falling into the cliches of poverty-porn and neocolonial views on developing countries and foreign cultures.
Throughout the film, she is confronted with her own privilege, superficiality and the banality of her own project.
There will be plenty of time after the screening for filmmakers and audience to engage in discussion about the ethics of representation, aesthetic exploitation and the (perceived) need to be more transparent about art's means of production and display.
