This Is It takes the form of a premiere press conference for a new movie of the same name. Team MESS use the format of this press conference to construct the completely speculative narrative of the film. The film unfolds in the space between what is revealed and what is left to the imagination of the audience – whilst the performed press-conference simultaneously questions and irreverently embraces the pretences of representation.
You are there. We are here. This is it.
