Utopia 1.0: Post-Neo-Futurist-Capitalism in 3D!, 2015, USA, Directed by Annie Berman, 20 min.

Rebecca Goyette’s alter ego Ghost Bitch, is a freelancing apparition of her direct ancestor, Rebecca Nurse, hanged as a Salem witch. Ghost Bitch performs as a history-reenacting aerialist by day and a dominatrix by night, alchemizing puritanical pain and conjuring subconscious pleasure for tourists of historic Salem, Massachusetts.
