Inspiration:
One of my biggest inspirations, my dad, Richard Levine, made this avant garde film the year I was born:
WAR STORIES 1983 Excerpt 01 is the first of 12 short excerpts from this 1983 film (with some slight editorial changes).
The full film has been screened at quite a few museums and film venues including the Whitney Museum and the American Museum of the Moving Image.
J.Hoberman, Village Voice:
"Levine’s images resemble the Warhol’s or Rauschenberg silkscreens of 20 years ago (but even less slick) or maybe a color TV with a bad concussion. Every motion is looped at least a dozen of times and submerged in a swirl of multiple superimpositions, with every layer tinted a separate color. Representation is pushed to its breaking point and yet, nothing really obscures the iconography of stretchers and body bags, death and degradation that you read less with your eyes than your gut…" —J. Hoberman, Village Voice, 1/24/84
