rare & strange video

The End Times

Here’s an old (early ’90s) video Sukho made using two VCRs and lots of VHS tape. Two collage tapes were edited and then “mixed” live at a studio, so the layering and juxtapositions are pretty much random – though occasionally there are some nice happy accidents. The only festival this was screened at was the very first Chicago Underground Film Fest back in 1994. It was also in conjunction with a short-lived cable access TV show in Ann Arbor, Michigan called The End Times. Maybe we’ll post some clips from that show at some point? It was a mix of live footage of underground bands, shorts made by underground filmmakers, and Sukho’s own video collage/cut-up video. The highlight of the show was getting angry callers to call in and denounce it.
