During World War II, the United States Army hired Lynne Sachs# cousin, Sandor Lenard, to reconstruct the bones - small and large - of dead American soldiers. This short anti-war cine-poem is composed of highly abstracted battle imagery and children at a birthday party.
"Profound. The soundtrack is amazing. The image at the end of the girl with the avocado seed so hopeful. Good work." Barbara Hammer.
