Vintage super-8 pornography handcranked and shot off super-8 viewer on mini-dv. Looks choppy; images emerge out of a haze—archeology of the porn images in a pseudo-flipbook.

8 min. super8

 

Smalltown Dr. So & So from Pam Kray on Vimeo.

Dance performance of same title. Choreography by Selene Colburn.
Not exactly a collaboration. I shot and edited this dance piece choreographed by Selene Colburn in San Francisco in 1993. In 1994, I performed live in another version of the dance piece and at one performance this movie played behind the dancers. I added this soundtrack, provided by the Italian group CCC CNC NCN.
