“Until My Fingers Bleed” is an experimental documentary, in which the images of the artistic performance intersect with the archival materials of the official government media channels. The film explores the potential of the image when crossing varied artistic supports and blurs the boundaries between documentary and poetic creation. That is, the spectacularization of the speech and the potential acting of the current president are beyond the documentary, approaching a kind of fictionalized reality, by bringing out a perverse poetics.
