Me and La Tourette

Niskanen Pekka

Me and La Tourette interlaces a story about death with experiences of political oppression. For most of us, the well-nigh invisible presence of security services in our private life, on the web and in the streets is as unreal as the sounds, figures and moving objects that we associate with the dead.
