Your Television Traveler

Rental Format(s): Digital File

The history of space, the place of mystery, the mystery of trace, the space of history.

"The core material is of space footage with a sound track that is an intimate discussion with a Cuban woman. Another group of images taken in Cuba is superimposed on it, It includes a major religious festival. The sound track with this material is from a documentary record about a space flight in which the astronauts internalize an identity with the racist comic character of a Hispanic astronaut, Jose Jimenez, and Castro comes to power. A final body of material is from a TV series in which the narrator, the 'TV Traveler,' narrates about the Florida turpentine industry. This is a counterpart to the sugar industry run by slaves and former slaves across the Caribbean. All the elements are superimposed in the final section." (Larry Gottheim)
