From New York: Rita Ackermann

Citing quarantine as an ideal time for collaboration with loved ones, Rita Ackermann shares a video made in collaboration with her husband Daniel Turner as part of our ongoing ‘From A Distance’ series.

Titling the submission ‘Follow Me / Broken Break’, Ackermann elaborated, ‘Daniel filmed me recording the runaway car scene from ‘Family Plot’, the last Hitchcock movie with the great Barbara Harris. The scene, both terrifying and light hearted, shows a broken break screeching down the Malibu Hills, during which the protagonists managed to stay calm and in love. I could not help but put the timeless Amanda Lear as the soundtrack to such a stressful catastrophic drive down.’
