THE BEARING WITNESS TRILOGY
PART ONE: THE ETERNAL QUARTER INCH(2008, 9m, Video)
Dipping between ecstasy and despair, transcendence and absurdity, this movie journeys to a hidden space where you can lose your way, lose yourself in the moment, lose your faith in a belief system. An exhausted and expectant crowd waits on this narrow span. It is not a wide stretch, but it can last forever.
PART TWO: SOMEWHERE ONLY WE KNOW (2009, 6m, Video)
Standing on the brink of elimination, the suspense threatening to fracture their composure, contestants wait and see if they will be going home. The audience at home is also waiting . . .
PART THREE: THE BURNING BLUE (2009, 9m, Video)
A video that observes the thrill, terror and boredom found in watching mass spectacles and the strange loneliness when you accidentally miss them.
