biograph> last year was pretty//shitty is made by Iver Findlay, Marit Sandsmark and Pål Asle Pettersen with Joe Truman and Ruud van den Akker in collaboration/conversation with Young Jean Lee, Victor E. Morales, and Claudia La Rocco.  A low tech preliminary version was shown during Oktoberdans 2012 @ bit teatergarasjen.  pretty//shitty meditates on nostalgia and its opposite in technology, making memory movements and attempting to erase everything that has come before and been recorded.  It turns out that ‘the good old times’ are not so good anymore.
