RETURN to EJay's Gardens

The original intention seems different ,
seems changed.
... a meditation on animal husbandry...
The film (produced in 1998) is derived from documentary footage I recorded of a 24 hour installation performance. It reconstructs, from my viewpoint, what it was like to participate as a partner in this event and evokes a sense of the endurance and physical dependence that evolved between the the two of us over the long night.

Original footage was shot in super 8 and blown up to 16mm on an optical printer.

Performers: Angelika Festa, EJay Sims, live bunny
Performance: "Heloise's Bird" with Angelika Festa at Franklin Furnace, NYC, 1985.
