witness


This film represents a series of dreams and events that occurred during my childhood. 
These dreams were repetitive and apocalyptic in nature. My use of the term 'apocalypse' is not necessarily religious in nature. 
I am interested in a broader definition that includes natural and artificial (fueled by man) disasters and traumatic familial or social events.
Through the use of archival footage (gathered at the National Archives in College Park Maryland), I was able to recontextualize these events and link them to the outside world.

How are the lines of 'choice' and 'experience' are drawn? How do these factors in turn affect our psyche as we age?
