Elisa, 5

Video, SI, 2010, 4′ 51″

Elisa, 5 is a video about a girl who ends up on a street on her 5th birthday, about the reality of São Paulo, the problem of homelessness, and about the social differences in the world. The 24-hour ultimatum, in which over a thousand people are forced to leave an occupied building in the middle of the city, is being intertwined with a birthday celebration of only one of the numerous children – inhabitants of that building. The video was produced during Rusjan’s Traffic Jam #1 residency in São Paulo, Brasil.

Part of the group exhibition Cheers to Women! 25 Years of Film and Video.

Free entrance.
