During the Great Depression, young lovers Bonnie Parker & Clyde Barrow went on an infamous three-year spree of bank robbery and murder, which ended abruptly in 1934 when they were ambushed and killed by police in Louisiana.
Nobody knows all the details, but their violent love story has become legendary worldwide. Through evidence, personal stories, rumours, re-enactments, video and drawings, the electric meeting of Bonnie & Clyde is retold, exploring the motivations that drive our fascination with the life and death of these notorious lovers.
Delivered in the third person through a variety of lo-fi media including video, drawings and overhead projection, Third Person: Bonnie & Clyde Redux creates a fragmented tale of evidence, rumours and the surprising connections between love, life, death and doughnuts.
