77’, Digital Video, 2007.
A returned Iraq war vet, invisible as such, steals a laptop computer in a Portland Oregon coffee house; a gay web-page designer talks with his boss about picking up a young man outside the public library; the vet lounges around the designer’s house, drinking, watching TV; the designer suggests and then vaguely accuses the young man of theft and says he cannot trust him; the vet attacks his host; the vet visits his parents in a traumatic return home; the vet is seen homeless with a girlfriend.
OVER HERE was filmed in Portland Oregon in a complete improvisation. It is not a plot film, but rather a film of tonalities, of suggestions.
