Outtakes from the film THE LIFE, LOVE & HATE OF A FREE JAZZ MAN & HIS WOMAN.
"FTW by Jorge Torres-Torres is a dystopian southern sludge that transgresses even the gothic sensibilities that exist just below the surface of the social fabric of the deep Louisiana culture visible here. The aesthetic artifacts of the video tapes and the vernacular wanderings caught on them present a rip-it-up-and-start-again style montage of life caught in the vise of western culture at the dead end of of the first world. A certain degree of creativity and energy is required to carve out lives of quality in places like this let alone what is necessary to maintain them. Torres-Torres’ visual kick in the shins lets the viewer in on a world where breakdowns and hiccups in those two things are common and often catastrophic."
