We are Going to be Poor Forever
Directed by Jeremiah Jones
Runtime 13 minutes
Jeremiah Jones’ We Are Going To Be Poor Forever, is an experimental video work which plays at the borders of animation, performance, and the virtual. The video follows two of Jeremiah’s hand made rabbit dolls, as they walk looking for a place to sleep. While traveling they meet a cast of characters who reflect on the relationships and ideas that have shaped their “post-something” world. These characters rarely infer meaning on their experiences; instead, they suggest questions without providing us answers.
