Beatriz Pizano tests her friendship with Lyon Smith by culling incriminating details from his average life. What begins as a Ritual of Interrogation to atone for a decade of repression, war and paranoia becomes a eulogy for the human costs of our collective safety through the medium of security technology.
What if we believe it, when we are told, “this was done for us?”
