No Downlink (excerpt)

No Downlink (2003, 10 minutes, DV video, stereo)
Written, directed, and edited by Joshua Thorson
Music by Nick Hallett and Sara Marcus

Premiered at Video DUMBO, 2004.

No Downlink is "a playful re-imagining of his origins as the civilized half of a Siamese pair rudely parted at birth in a bit of impromptu surgery. Still sporting the livid, symbolic wound as a sweet-tempered adult, Thorson plots a half-desired, half-dreaded reunion with his prodigal “wolf boy” twin through deftly calibrated split-screen compositions, his memories – both real and imagined – striated with the plumes of the Challenger space shuttle explosion." —Ioannis Mookas, "Midnight at the Oasis," Senses of Cinema, 2004.
