Florian Riegel, Germany, 2010HD Cam, Colour, 27'

We meet Janice, who has lived in Seaside for over twenty years, however almost none of the other residents have ever seen her. Janis was paralysed at the age of 22 and has spent the following twenty years mostly in bed. She looks at the world via surveillance cameras connected to her laptop. We look at her hometown, Seaside, once the location of the feature film The Truman Show, through her eyes.
