NOZONE (1993) 18 min, 16mm
is a five part essay, eloquently surrounding the idea of millenial anxiety.
An urban forager finds medicine under freeways; a freight hopper lists the
contents of his backpack; and a recycler of atomic surplus displays some
of his favorite failed technologies.
film uses different perspectives and different forms of speech to create
a confluence of ideas about doom; it's up to the viewer to decide how
these anecdotes fit together. Among the featured subjects are Aaron Cometbus,
of fanzine fame, and Ed Grothus, legendary Los Alamos denizen of cold
war and chilled philosophies.
