I Can’t Go Back to Yesterday

“I Can’t Go Back to Yesterday” is an experimental cross-over music film, connected to the conceptual music album EASY ALICE. Both creations reflect on sovereignty, isolation, seclusion, schizophrenia, gender balance and the desire for detachment. It researches the encounter between the world of Kafka, Alice in Wonderland, PJ Harvey, Eminem and Nietzsche. The movie script is based on diverse interviews with iconic figures as David Bowie, Paolo Pasolini, Donald Trump, Prince, Grace Jones, Leonard Cohen and Roy Cohn.
