While filming on the Manhattan Hudson River pier one day an older gentleman claiming he was “the real Leo Bloom” insinuated his way into my film. Perhaps like James Joyce who saw Ulysses as his favorite hero my Leo sees himself as Joyce’s Leopold Bloom. A self-possessed character wandering about town on a journey of introspection, like Joyce he is full of puns, allusions and a broad humor. My Leo is in juxtaposition to the cityscape and the politics of space around him -constantly in flux and changing. The radio frequencies of the sound design were influenced by a sense of nostalgia he inspired in me.
