"Genre Collage" by People Like Us

Still courtesy of People Like Us

In the current issue of Film Comment, I've written about a new work by Vicki Bennett, aka People Like Us, entitled Genre Collage. For those who know her previous video work, Genre Collage is a bit of a departure in a couple of ways: less compositing, with a greater reliance on straight cutting; the source footage is derived from narrative features, as opposed to the industrial and educational material that was typical of her past work. She's currently touring the world with it (it includes a live music component she performs on site), and New Yorkers will have a chance to see it on April 14 at Issue Project Room. Please have a look- the article can be found here:
