    Saddam Hussein’s palace is looted in Baghdad in 2003. A red Ferrari Testarossa disappears from his garage. Years pass by and cars from the same garage are found around the world; some crashed, some in mint condition. The Testarossa is still out there, ghost riding through the never-ending desert.

    Director's Statement

    The Tracks of my Tears was a video installation made for my graduation in the spring of 2010. Over the winter of 2010 it grew and got a beginning, a middle and an end. In the spring of 2011 it transformed into The Tracks of my Tears 2. Enjoy the New Horizon!
