Matt Lambert’s video intermingles three moments in time. The past is represented by images of the budding love between two boys, while the present occupies itself with a peaceful existence in a small town. The two men are seeing each other but since they belong to two warring fractions, they need to hide their feelings. The Nazi movement provokes violence in the town, beginning a vicious cycle that will end with a tragedy in the future. Can this vision be prevented? Mykki Blanco warns of the consequences of hate and of its enduring reach in the 21st century.
