American Media Entertainment Presents

Video Art

The year was 2003 and the drumbeat for war was all the rage. American Media Entertainment Presents (2003; trt: 3:47 min) is a short video exploring the echochamber that enveloped America during the run-up to the war. The piece is composed entirely of American cable news footage that was recorded in a span of two days at around the time of the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. The video was meant to play like a short film / music video and is set to the theme music of Godfather as recorded by Fantômas (Ipecac Records).
