2019 Jury’s Choice Award | Onion City Experimental Film + Video Festival | Chicago, Illinois

Musielak exploits the direct sentimentality of a 1980’s U2 mega-balad, showing its second life as a banal karaoke dead-stock text. Instead of playing it cool and ironic, Museilak evacuates this lyric cliche, replacing the space carved out with a kaleidoscope of self-portraits that point to an arrival that never comes, nor ever will be." - Jury of the 29th Onion City Experimental Film + Video Festival
