The Miraculous Levitation Act of Lauren O

Hong Kong-based artist Angela Su narrates the story of Lauren O, a mysterious circus performer drawn to levitation practices. The video tracks O from her membership in Laden Raven, an anarchist group of vaudeville performers, to her involvement with anti-Vietnam War protesters in the United States, who in 1967 attempted to levitate the Pentagon.

Su explores the perils of flight and emotional breakdown, and journeys into the recesses of the mind of her protagonist.
