My project engages with history, representation, biography, personal narrative, and otherness in the documentary tradition. Each year in Pennsylvania, 500 people come together to reenact the Battle of the Bulge. During the reenactment, I portray Leni Riefenstahl and behave with soldiers, as she would have. I am intrigued by the complex story of a woman with a problematic set of morals. My work aims to understand people beyond the constraints of good vs evil. I have inserted myself into the Nazi reenactor photographs to subvert the viewer’s instinct to dismiss these people as different from themselves. This allows me to reflect upon atrocity, delve into my own relationship with my Jewish heritage, and contemplate the camera’s ability to re-imagine history.

Much of our conception of history is based on images. Historical images have been filtered through media and propaganda. These images become history as generations pass. Images are the dominant force that shape the public imagination. My images of the reenactment are part of the deconstruction process by which images first represent and then replace history.

The next phase of this project will explore Riefenstahl’s life between 1962-1977 when she lived with the Nuba in Sudan. I will visit the same Nuba tribes to focus on the disjunction between her fetishized images and my own exploration of the Nuba’s complex modern reality. The Nuba were victims of genocide during a recent civil war and it has deeply impacted their culture. They were forcibly relocated to camps and Islamicized. Hundreds of thousands died from warfare and starvation.

My project asks how we live in a world where genocide takes place in continuum? It reflects on the history of the documentary tradition as it poses new ways of expressing identity in relation to ‘otherness’. This project deconstructs the notion of the photograph as document, its power as a tool of propaganda, as a witness to history and a call for change.

igtm.jpgAmid the Sundance Festival thrills and sensations, rumors surfaced today that Indie Game: The Movie (IGTM) was going to be made into a half-hour comedy series on HBO. There's a bit of truth to that, shares Blinkworks Media's James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot on IGTM's Facebook page: "HBO has optioned IGTM for the basis of a (fictional) series."

However, they reassure everyone that it will not be a comedy, nor will it be a sitcom. "The information came out and someone filled in a blank, and this is why: The (potential) show is being developed within the 1/2 hour department within HBO. We are told that 1/2 hr department is often shorthanded 'comedy department'. Full hour dept = 'drama department'. That is the basis of the 'Comedy' label."

The IGTM show is being produced by Scott Rudin, who has produced 'The Social Network', 'True Grit', 'Moneyball', and 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'. I imagine these talks were in the works prior to Sundance. To give a taste of the recent buzz IGTM has been getting, Entertainment Weekly ranked it #9 in the top 12 must-see movies at Sundance 2012.

Man, these two filmmakers are truly indie superstars! For fun, anyone well versed in Hollywood and TV trivia, let me hear in the comments who'd play a good Phil Fish, Edmund McMillen, Tommy Refenes, and Jonathan Blow.

Hey guys,

This image was done for Entertainment Weekly, and is in the current issue that hit stands last Friday. This week marks the 40th anniversary of A Clockwork Orange.

No sketch for this one, I just went straight in with ink and brush. The original is drawn with olive green shellac-based ink on a sheet of vintage paper.

Thanks for reading,
