AFTERMATHS: SOME FOOD MAY BE FOUND IN THE DESERT (1976)

AFTERMATHS: SOME FOOD MAY BE FOUND IN THE DESERT, UTAH MOVIE ROAD MAP and STANDARD ADULT WHEELCHAIR are three super-8mm films which represent various spatial, cultural and natural landscapes of downtown New York during the economic recession of the seventies, landscapes represented through the personal and political viewpoint of a young woman. Photographed near the Fulton Fish Market in 1976, SOME FOOD MAY BE FOUND IN THE DESERT, looks at a small beach and what has been left on the sand by the action of the river. The soundtrack is a recording made in Chinatown during Chinese New Year. Firecrackers continuously explode around us while a layers of red paper accumulates on the ground. These annual celebrations in lower Manhattan sounded like war. Since the Guiliani administration, they are no longer permitted. Two versions of deposit, one we see, one we hear. (Experts from Andrea Callard’s site. More information can be found here.) Super 8, Color, Sound, 8 min.
