Even though I have no illusions about art work influencing anything, I got to the point where I had to do something in the "language" that I speak: the moving image. During our lockdowns we've all thought the same things in some form as what I'm trying to express in these videos.
The first includes the three short films that follow. This page also includes 2016 responses to presidential election.
After Anger (2020)
This short film is about the President of the United States, the Covid-19 pandemic, and the economic catastrophe faced on a global and national scale. It is also an homage to the filmmaker Kenneth Anger.
Wipes Out (2020) 3:20
Three years of Trump leading to the present state of "wipe out." The economy is flailing, the President is encouraging civil war, and the pandemic contines to ravage the country and world. After going anywhere, we have to get the "wipes out."
Wonderful World (2020) 2:20
This is a thank-you film for the international protests in solidarity with the demonstrations for BLM and against police brutality in the United States. It is sentimental and bittersweet.
