About

"The girls-only party scenes in THE VISION MACHINE have both the ruddy look of overexposed home movies and the richly burnished texture of Renaissance paintings cracking under their veneer. A riff on Duchamp's Anemic Cinema (Ahwesh, with Keith Sanborn's collaboration, inscribes the lyrics of 'Wild Thing' on a warped video version of a roto-relief) and on Bunuel's Viridiana (here the lowlifes invading the manor are women artists), THE VISION MACHINE is an inspired depiction of girls dressing up and acting out, pleased as punch to have taken over the screen." – Amy Taubin, The Village Voice
