Your Inner Trotsky Child

  • Your Inner Trotsky Child Poster Slider Image

USA | 61 min | Digital Projection | Dir. Jim Finn

Jim Finn's work has shown a fixation with Communist ideology, with nearly every one of his films approaching the subject in some way (he's also potentially the only experimental filmmaker to appear on MSNBC, where he was a guest in 2010 to talk about North Korean propaganda). His Inner Trotsky Child trilogy takes this fascination and mashes it up with new age self-betterment in a sort of delirious pastiche of unpopular ideologies. Set in an alternate universe where Leon Trotsky lived to have his ideas evolved into self-help videotapes, Finn's videos utilize low-fi 80's aesthetics not out of place in something by Tim and Eric to ask more serious questions about the interplay of history and ideology.
