"Kodachrome revisited" by Jon Behrens
180 rolls of slide filmtransfered to DVD, color, 1987

Jon Behrens is a prolific self-taught filmmaker with the vision of Andy Warhol and the skills of Stan Brakhage. His work covers all styles and genres of experimental film from punk rock documentaries to found footage and abstract film.
For 'Kodachrome Revisited', Behrens spliced together 180 uncut rolls of 35 mm slide film and inserted them into a 35-mm film projector. The result is a frantic and chaotic succession of rotated images impossible to read and sustain. This entropic flicker-film suggests a sense of suspended disaster, an effect enhanced by a soundtrack provided by The Throbbing Gristle.
