“But these meetings, these partings, finally destroy us.”

—Virginia Woolf, The Waves (New York: Harcourt, 1978)

“Since the release of his celebrated feature Swoon, Kalin has produced a number of fascinating short videos. While all have a strong relation to music video, finally destroy us is perhaps the most personal and reminiscent of his earlier project… Defiantly romantic, finally destroy us is a video torch song to the sound of Annie Lennox singing Cole Porter. His subject is the end of a relationship, and his offering is a scrapbook of lush recollections of love.”

—Jason Simon, Downsizing the Image Factory (travelling video exhibition)

This title is also available on Third Known Nest by Tom Kalin.
