" Art Institutionalized (SFAI) "

1980, 5 minutes, 16mm, black and white, sound
Directed, Filmed and Edited by Dominic Angerame

A humorous parody on the condition of creative film studies in art schools and colleges in general. The soundtrack is a composition combining the musical score from the film BALLET MECANIQUE and the voices of film students testing various pieces of film recording equipment and complaining about grades and procedures.

The visuals reveal a modern day mechanical ballet performed by the instructor (myself) on the dada chessboard of absolute reality to the automatic beat of an intervalometer clicking time away one frame per second, as he attempts to relay technical data to his students.
