When you think of America, what comes to mind? Car culture, big business, advertising, religious fundamentalism, consumer society, militarism, suburbia, office towers, and the technology of paranoia? The film Imagined States of America takes on the myths to get at the heart of a country that continues to fascinate the world. Inspired by the photo collages of Québec artist Pierre Guimond, and incorporating an intricately built soundscape, this film is like a dream on the verge of a nightmare as America is revealed with all its paradoxes.
