Someone Else’s Shoes (2007)

Synopsis The Production Photographs Reviews


A sharp and witty satire on the commodification of art and life. An artist sells her work, but believes she still owns it. An advertising genius hunts for the next ‘big idea’. A thief steals shoes and calls it activism. . . Jed just wants to do the right thing. Everything is a product: shoes, art, sex – even protest. How can we commit in a world where compromise rules?
