In Inna di Video Light you’re guided through the noisy world of dancehall by the Internet_Dollz; two It-Girl cyborgs. Meet the stars of the night, dancehall queens and kings during 100 long party nights in Kingston, intermixed with life online in a dreamlike hyper-reality. The club scene forms a stage for blasting feelings and physical discharge, which is intensified by the presence of the camera. This expression, which in other times might have been acted out through spiritual rituals, is now captured by the parallel universe of the virtual world, where its users reinterpret and transform it. The internet becomes an image of the globalized society’s collective subconscious, which holds everything from the most forbidden, amusing and raw to the most loving, well-polished and personal. Get captured in Inna di Video Lights world where there are no longer clear boundaries between the cinematic and the physical or the dreamed and the lived.
