SOME EXPLICIT POLAROIDS

STORY
London, 1999. Nick, a far-left activist who was imprisoned for a failed assassination attempt on a wealthy businessman, is released after fifteen years in prison. He doesn't recognize the world anymore. His girlfriend and fellow fighter from the past no longer needs him, she has opted for a career in politics in the meantime. On his own, Nick tries to start a new life in a world he no longer understands. He meets a nightclub dancer who only talks in therapy language, a Russian boy looking for party and happiness and an HIV-infected man who wonders if living on is worth living on. Nick tries to focus on the future, but the past catches up with him...

Some Explicit Polaroids shows the most diverse, but damaged people who all wonder how to live a good life in a confusing, chaotic world. Improve the world or enjoy the time you have here? It is a sharp, energetic and tragicomic tale about ideals and what they are worth in this capitalist world. Activism and fighting for your ideals is very topical, but this piece asks us the question: what will happen to our ideals as time passes?
