Weak Bodies and Strong Wills

1986, 5:34 min, color, sound

"The visual track of Weak Bodies and Strong Wills comes from my 1973 film, Enlightenment through Experience: Interim Semester at Albright College. The found film images had been kept in a closet at Albright College, where I was invited to teach a workshop. I edited the original silent footage and added audio as a demonstration. In video, it has been turned into a little song about the rust belt. Incidentally, 'The Boss' is played by Harry Truman, seen as he visited Reading, Pennsylvania, sometime around the middle of the century." —Tony Conrad
