A surreal remembrance of the tragedy at the World Trade Center on September 11th.
I tried to think of the best way to tell a story of that day, to make it stand out, not in a political light, but as a film that reflects the intensity and disturbance of the event. I started shooting images of industrial buildings, smoke, and rubble. I also decided to hand process the film, paint on clear 16mm film, and cut up super 8mm film to use the halves for the representation the twin towers.
As I was working on making the film, I decided to also paint, scratch and bleach the film to reflect the explosion of images with the sound effects I gathered. I event went as far to the extent of burning the film to be able to intensify the experince. Over 5700 frames of images later, the story was complete.
