An experimental film conceived at “Pisland One”, an artist residency in Nikisialka, Poland, where a group of Icelandic and Polish artists resided in the summer of 2008. All the artists collaborated with filmmaker Thorgeir Gudmundsson in fulfilling a premise based on the idea of collaborative drawings that the surrealists called exquisite corpses. Thorgeir played the main character of Man in a Black Suit and each co-author decided the character’s destiny for the next two minutes of film. Each artist was only told the last frame of the preceding action and hence a story unfolded in and of it’s own making.
