PACIFIC VEIN takes us through a painterly US panorama. Julian Assange stands between ancient columns, hippies, and energy drinks, pondering the digitalization of our world. Media scenes merge hypnotically with documentary footage. The empire is diligent (self-optimization) and nervous (weapons), and the American Dream glitched into a ghostly autosuggestion. Where is the enemy and who has the image rights?
