From the claustrophobic confines of suburban surveillance to the infinite landscapes of the Taklamakan desert, Deborah’s films blur the line between abstract and documentary filmmaking and capture the alien environments within everyday life. In Order Not To Be Here confronts the hermetic nature of white-collar communities by examining the ways privacy, safety, fear and surveillance determine our environment, while Kings of the Sky documents a tightrope troupe fighting for religious autonomy and political independence.
DVD includes: In Order Not To Be Here, Kings of the Sky, and From Hetty To Nancy.
