  • Dear Guy is a feature-length film which dramatizes an inward and sometimes romantically sentimental meditation on the relevance, remembrance and acculturation of Guy Debord's life and works. The layered histrionics of the film offer reconsiderations of identification, moral responsibility, nostalgia, and the potential of art in contemporary society. Excerpts from Debord's memoir and fictional epistolary monologues are combined with an eclectic assortment of appropriated materials, invented leitmotifs, lecture performances, hybrid forms of the essay film, documentary and edutainment formats. Dear Guy drifts through a labyrinth-like montage structure that frustrates passive viewing while inviting contemplation.
