In Evidentiary Dilemmas, a series of films document conversations, collect facts and catalogue statements. While some are personal, domestic, or familial, others are judicial, deal with historical moments and hearsay. Altogether these works are an assemblage of documentation and (para-)fiction. Initially, the uncanny assertion is made that the factual nature of what we see - or perhaps don't see - will provide stability; the stability of knowing. But the greater the burden of the facts, the more unsettling the head-on confrontation gets with not knowing. Unable to bare the discomfort, one strategy may be to settle into disorientation as an honest state that comes with its own rewards.
