The work shows pedestrian signs painted on the street, filmed over the course of a year. The name of the film is also a sign, which can be read as: like before, like earlier. The repetitive piece refers to a beautiful emotion: a longing for the past.
About the director: Born in 1963, Seppo Renvall is a pioneer in Finnish experimental film. He works mainly with film and video, but his artistic output also includes photography, installations and happenings. His films are characterised by abstract imagery in black and white and a non-narrative structure that often focuses on the apparently commonplace and everyday. Renvall collaborates with musicians, DJs and audio specialists. His works and performances have been seen at the most prestigious alternative film and visual arts arenas, from the Anthology Film Archive in New York to the Venice and Sao Paulo bienniales.
