House Comes with a Bird

Janicza Bravo, USA 2022, 15’
F^¢K '€M R!GHT B@¢K Last Days of August

As Penn straps her pearl detailed heels, and dons crystal studded shades, she leaves haughty instructions for Jean about the house. Find the right place for the flowers. Eat outside (smells linger). What, we are told, is a question, and what is a statement? Jean plumps the rich cushions, dolefully plays cello, and receives potential buyers of this striking modernist villa. Meanwhile, a splendid macaw sits in a cage, while a hulking tortoise mooches in the back garden.
