August 9: Wikus Van De Merwe's Very Bad Day



Sheesh. Four very bad days in a row. August 6, 1945. August 7, 1915. August 8, 1969. And now August 9, 2010. Except that one didn't really happen.

At least, not as far as I know.

A landmark film in its genre, I would say. The verite style uses lots of surveillance cameras, TV feeds, and time-coded documentary footage. Which means lots of dates onscreen. I edited together all the time-coded footage (and one clip that's not) into this rather disorienting montage.

We'll get happy tomorrow, I promise you.
