A Small Jubilee

1987, 7:04 min, b&w and color, sound

Referring to the Biblical passage that enjoins against the making of graven images, A Small Jubilee, which was created following Gorewitz's grandmother's death, merges the personal and the social. Religious symbolism is countered with visions of political upheaval and chaos, and the rhythmic ebb and flow of image and text manipulation.

Video/Text: Shalom Gorewitz. Music composed with Brooks Williams. Text performed by Beo Morales. Editor: Rick Feist.
