The realms of childhood, war and loss echo through RICKY. Double-vision illuminates (and simultaneously obfuscates) what can be remembered, lost or retrieved. A found-sound recording forms the spine of the film... a scratched audio-letter from father to son.
"Multiple pasts come alive in Geiser’s films. This speaks to the density of the frame, an often crowded cluster of images and objects layered over each other, always passing across one another, and covered, at times, by deep shadow. Just as we see photographs in their negative reverse, we also hear songs played backwards, creating an effect of simultaneity where all moments from the past are active at once." - Genevieve Yue
