Spring In Awe
- Official Website
The lights of Times Square have always awed spectators. Over the years the incandescent bulbs of theaters have given way to the fluorescent tubes of advertising. Specificity has been lost as everything becomes generic. In this landscape the news of the war in Iraq becomes just another part of corporate America. Displayed on oversized screens, images of the war become compelling entertainment. Flashing between a toy giraffe and a beer commercial the news of more troops killed loses its scary reality. Shot entirely in Times Square, Spring In Awe examines how the realities and absurdities of the war in Iraq are obscured by the blurring of the lines between news, entertainment and advertising.
