City in Heat

A hot summer evening inside of a parked car. Unfolding in real time, first through the lens of a dashboard cam, encounters in a car accumulate and combust out of the camera’s view, into the live present. Part drive-in movie, part surveillance voyeurism, part abstracted domestic drama.

Conceived, written and directed by Johanna Kasimow, co-written, performed and technical direction by Kate In and Carlos Ferguson

Premiered at the Open Air Media Festival, Public Space One, Iowa City, IA in June 2023
