TRT 58 minutes

Bjorn Again is a video recreation of the 1980 U.S. Open Finals between Bjorn Borg and his female alter ego/ anima Chris Sollars in a skirt. Chris has edited himself into the match over Bjorn Borg’s nemesis John McEnroe, creating Borg vs. Borg, battle of the ego. The skirt distracts and seduces Borg into losing his focus and the match.

As one of the greatest male tennis players of all time, Borg won every major tournament except for the U.S. Open, which was his particular jinx. The 1980 U.S. Open Final was his third and last failed attempt at an unattainable Grand Slam, and was also his last year of holding the No. 1 ranking. No male career of the modern era has been so brief and bright.
