Dear Reader, I am currently in Auckland, NZ. Far away from the hyper-activity of Sao Paulo and its 32nd biennial. In the spirit of "Thanks"-giving (just around the corner) I’ve written a long overdue response to a film I saw at the biennial. I think about it often. So, I hope my description of Brazilian multi-disciplinary artist Jonathas de Andrade’s film, O peixe (2016), encourages you to pause and reflect on intention, the origins of our sustenance, and human-animal and human-human empathy.
