2:01 clip of a 19:26 piece. Index A: PowerTrouble is the first in a series of videos revolving around letters, primarily from the narrator to a deceased loved one, Ty. It is revealed that he is an old love interest and his loss is counterposed with events in a current fling she is having. The emotions and nuances expressed in the piece are visually displayed through film images, referencing everything from underground experimental art films to Hollywood blockbusters, including but not limited to Pier Paolo Pasolini, Paul Thomas Anderson, Andy Warhol, Carolee Schneeman, and Hito Steyerl.
