Everness is a film installation made up of 5 chapters: a remake of the very last scene of James Joyce's the dead, a monologue on the meaning of tragedy, a breakfast scene, and two songs: one from the Spanish Civil War and another from Brasil's Tropicalia movement. It addresses the revision of public and private history, while tangentially describing ideas typically associated with moments of youth: a first love, the loss of innocence, and a somewhat naive, romantic, yet sincere, political and affective conviction towards the real.
