In the 1980s soldiers started appearing on the streets of Paris. They were part of “Operation Pirate Vigil” which usually lasted a few months after a terrorist attack occurred, then the soldiers disappeared until the next attack.

This film is composed of short videos shot with my phone on my way home from the studio, and posted on Instagram. When I moved to Rome, I found soldiers in the streets as well, and I met Alvin Curran. His song “Walked the Way Home” inspired me to edit these Instagram videos together into a film titled after Alvin’s song •
