Bethlehem

A personal miscellany that began as a tribute to Bruce Conner’s experiments with found footage such as Valse Triste and Take the 5:10 to Dreamland.

Ahwesh works with an archive of accumulated footage as though it were from anonymous sources, ‘editing memories like a string of pearls’. What began as an homage to an important moment in the history of US-experimental cinema, becomes a lyrical mediation of autobiography and a dedication to the artist’s father.
