Unrequited Love: On Stalking and Being Stalked

Synopsis
Based on the autobiographical book by English academic Gregory Dart. Stalking operates in the borders between normal love and pathological fantasy. This filmed version is a digital film essay on cinema and absence, on Hitchcock and Antonioni, on cinema and cities. It is a story of waiting, self-delusion, panic, fear of violence, and of modern technologies which define the urban stalker as they do the new terrorist. Their methods duplicate: both are irrational and targeted.
