description

A borgesian fantasy composed of multiple worlds, You Are Here circles and weaves around itself in unexpected ways. At the centre of this narrative labyrinth is Tracy Wright (Me And You And Everyone We Know, Monkey Warfare), a reclusive woman who searches for meaning in the mysterious documents that keep appearing to her. Her investigation begins when she finds a tape recording of a man giving a bizarre lecture: calming and sinister at the same time, he instructs how to “get where you need to go”. One by one documents present themselves to create a puzzle of space and mind. You Are Here follows several interwoven characters, and puts viewers in a state of disorientation, taking them from one story to another.

You Are Here is the first feature film by internationally acclaimed Toronto-based video artist Daniel Cockburn. Funny, disturbing, and thought-provoking, it pushes at the boundaries of cinematic storytelling -- while creating a deep and strange emotional connection with its cast of characters as they negotiate an absurd and cryptic world.
