This Nameless Spectacle takes its title from American poet William Carlos Williams’ poem The Right of Way. In this poem Williams describes the fascination with which we observe anonymous actions, the “nameless spectacles” which surround us every day, everywhere. In the film, Just tracks his two protagonists through Paris’ famous Buttes Chaumont park. This Nameless Spectacle is presented on two massive panoramic screens that face each other. The action is mirrored and split between the two screens, bouncing from one to the other. This choreography is intended to wholly envelop the viewer in both the imagery and the narrative, simultaneously rendering the viewer a witness and an important player in the action. Dependent on the viewers’ gaze and attention that focuses on the anonymous and nameless spectacle witnessed within the film, the story is complete.
