Video to music by Waschering Maschine. Waschering Maschine is Billy Franklin - bass, samples; Reid Kruger - drums, rhodes; Tom Schroeder - guitar, narration; Jonathan Zorn - analog synthesizer. Excerpts from Vachel Lindsey's "Art of the Moving Picture" are organized as a narrative over the music, a lunatic text of original cinema awe. Finally, public domain silent films are edited to support the arguments of both Lindsay and Waschering Maschine. Brian Judd adds an introduction as Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch.
