A Viper is Nonetheless a Viper (2021)

Two-channel projection, mono, 13 minutes 0 seconds

Aggregating archival military footage from postwar Japan and Japanese/American incarceration, film clips from French and Japanese cinema, and photographic slides from the United States' early occupation of Japan, this two-channel video considers the origins and functions of cinema, the formation of historical memory, and the transoceanic space of empire.
