Jim’s last round (1995-1996)

Jim’s last round is a 10 minute black and white film. The scene takes place in a bar in the early hours of the morning between two customers with only the barman as witness. Their conflict appears at first like a dramatization of male forms of intimidation and humiliation with the absent Jim acting as the symbol of male adhesion, togetherness and fraternity, whilst also serving as a tool of conflict and aggression. The “final outcome” of the fight is comically twisted so as to reverse the roles of masochist and sadist, casting a fundamental doubt on the values represented by Jim and his two creators, the last clients in the bar.
