Rental Format(s): 16mm film

In Spring, 1970, the war protests brought the National Guard into Athens (Ohio University). I somehow found myself married and going on a honeymoon to Mexico on a three-cylinder 500cc Kawasaki. The film was shot with a Super 8 camera, enlarged to 16mm, and edited on a flat-bed. It is loosely formed around the idea of an earth journey, using the river as a structural motif. The Super 8 film gives the picture an ultra-realism associated with the home-movie aesthetic. The music from George Harrison's Wonderwall album seems to contribute to the magical quality of the film. The film was completed as a graduate thesis work the year we were divorced.
