Using an accidental two-hour voice memo of emotional processing with a former partner as a script, Natalie/Tsui has gathered together friends, a couple, and actors to dissect and reenact the conversation for the camera. As Natalie films and directs, a secondary camera films an uninterrupted wide shot of the entire shoot day, documenting discussions around script analysis, character motivation, and Natalie’s highly subjective recollection of lived events while the participants work to condense the two-hour conversation into a narrative story.
An examination of the complexities of personal memory, I Love You, I’m Sorry, Come Here is a multichannel video installation combining footage from the filmed recreations, personal video archives and documentary footage to explore the limits of documentary film production and the latent ideological drives of the moving image.
