Suburban Peace Coalition (1998) VHS NTSC, , 3 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Political / Social Activism

Suburban Peace Coalition explores "end of the millennium hysteria" and the suburban desire to see the centers of sin, the metropolises of the United States, punished. Using distorted and repetitious mages of New York's destruction as it is portrayed in numerous action movies including "Independence Day" and "Armageddon" combined with the saccharin-soaked pop song from the film "Xanadu"; "You Have To Believe We Are Magic', the video is both hypnotic and menacing. The militia-like "Suburban Peace Coalition" logo hovers between spirituality and a perverse desire for the ultimate end.
