The Neighbours Featuring Billie Eilish and Ariana Papademetropoulos
Gus Van Sant and Alessandro Michele • 2020 • Italy/US • English/Italian
We return to the apartment where the day began, but this time meet characters in the homes surrounding, gaining a voyeuristic view into their lives, fantasies and unguarded private moments – including a painter intently cleaning her fake eyelashes, played by artist Ariana Papademetropoulos. Someone in a bathtub watches television, as a music video starring Billie Eilish fills our screens, playing in its entirety. These vignettes captured through the frames of the windows ultimately combine into a reversal of perspective, as Silvia once more takes centre stage.
