L.M. Bogad with Guillermo Gómez-Peña Marlène Ramírez-Cancio

Bogad is guided and goaded by a “GGPS” system (in his car? in his mind?) as he explores an existential performance-activist landscape in this “auto”-ethnography. Geographical “lost-ness” is quickly subsumed by political and ethical dilemmas and directions as the artists argue, agree, and head for the borderlands.
