Henry Hills

Money (1985) 16mm, color, 14.5 min

Keywords: Dance, Political / Social Activism

Filmed primarily on the streets of Manhattan for the ambient sounds and movements and occasional pedestrian interaction to create a rich tapestry of swirling colors and juxtaposed architectural spaces in deep focus and present the intense urban over-flowing energy that is experience living here. MONEY is thematically centered around a discussion of economic problems facing avant-garde artists in the Reagan era. Discussion, however, is fragmented into words and phrases and reassembled into writing. Musical and movement phrases are woven through this conversation to create an almost operatic composition. Give me money! "If time is money, this 15-minute film is a bargain." -- J. Hoberman, The Village Voice "Henry Hills's most recent superspliced effort is MONEY, a speedy think-piece on cash and chaos in post-capitalist New York. -- It'll titillate your retina." -- Katherine Dieckmann, NY Talk Collections: Museum of Modern Art, NY and the Donnell Media Center collection of the NY Public Library.
