Since I decided to call this film “FIXED,” this word has stuck out every time I encounter it in print or it pops up in conversation. What does it mean “to be fixed?” When do we want “to fix” and why? This photo was taken by a great photographer friend, Lisa Ganser. The photo is a close up of a red curb with white cursive script which says “To that which cannot be fixed”. There is also the front of Lisa’s foot in a black sneaker. The concrete is slick with rain and there’s water pooling in the street next to the curb. Ever since she showed me the image, this phrase has haunted me. It speaks to the heart of our film, FIXED. It seems to speak back to a culture obsessed with perfection and perfecting, and holds up our human “imperfections” as something to celebrate, to raise a glass to, in fact. If you encounter the word FIXED anywhere that seems interesting to snap a photo of, please send it to us and we’ll start an album here of FIXED photos in the world: info @ fixedthemovie dot com.
In the meantime, let’s raise a glass “to that which cannot be fixed!”
