War Zone

Rental Format(s): Digital File

"In War Zone, Dominic Angerame revisits his personal experience (like no other) as artist-in-residence, exploring a symbol that once stood for political, social and cultural divisions brought about and shaped by the Korean War, which are now more ambiguous, nuanced and multi-layered than ever. Filmed in the Korean Demilitarized Zone in 2005, War Zone commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Korean Armistice Agreement, documenting Angerame's unique take on the history, geopolitics and present-day of the DMZ, which emerges as a complex site that goes well beyond its borders. War Zone is one of Angerame's most original and remarkable works to day, which offers an insider's perspective on 'No Man's Land' and a rare glimpse into what life at one of the world's most heavily fortified borders is like, revealing the intricate complexities of the area and capturing the tension that is still in the air." -- Kornelia Boczkowska, author of Lost Highways, Embodied Travels: The Road Movie in American Experimental Film and Video, https://orcid.org/0000-0003-0875-9209

"War Zone has a tonal magic in both image and soundscape that transcends the subject and yet honors historical facts. The standard aspect ratio of the image that is so rare to be seen in new film work honors the beauty of the image dynamics. Dominic makes the subtle expression inherent in film transmit 'Magic' in an era dominated by flat digital image making." -- Sky David
