November 21: The Day Before


Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination,
a day when the world as we knew it irrevocably changed...


Talking Eyes Media presents our experimental short TOMORROW: The upturn still will be sizable (but not as exuberant as otherwise).  Our video -- which riffs on the snappy tone of advertising from the era -- draws from archival imagery and audio to explore the incongruity between the popular notion of Camelot and the crises that were brewing the day before Kennedy was assassinated.

This piece was commissioned by the Hermitage Artist Retreat and was created in collaboration with composer Daniel Levy.  It premiered at Symphony Space in New York as part of a group show titled The Day Before, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Kennedy's assassination.
