The final version of the video contains clips from 35 films and clocks in at 38 minutes and 44 seconds. I created four new Flattened Videos for a total of eight pieces hanging on the walls of the gallery. I also produced a small publication, using text and images from the Instagram posts I'd been making about the development of the project over the past several months.

Special Agent (1935, USA) starring Bette Davis as Julie
Julie Perini makes experimental and documentary videos and films. Preoccupied with daily life, her short-form personal works are autobiographical, self-reflective, and expressive. Her documentary feature films are produced within and alongside contemporary social movements. She is co-director, with Jodi Darby and Erin Yanke, of the documentary feature film, Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon (2015) distributed by Collective Eye Films. You might like to treat yourself to a peak at her daily & monthly video project, the Minute Movies. One more cool thing about Julie: she is a backcountry guide with the arts/environmental organization Signal Fire.
