The Fruit of Chardin is a video symphony following a group of friends who meet in the evening to eat, party, explore the city, and make video and music together. Includes rare footage of Subterranean Video and an interview with video artist Nam June Paik, who discusses the meaning of Fluxus.
This first 16mm film made after graduate school, and also my last. Coyote Tracks culminates my interest in Semiotics and the exploration of cinema as a linguistic system. Each shot represents a single “pictograph” in a sentence describing a narrative journey. Shot in New Mexico and featuring a cast of old friends.
