Superbowl Sunday, 1998
I don't give a damn about football, and neither does anyone else who appears in this video.
A low-grade tribute to the classic films of Vittorio De Sica--may we once again develop a taste for realities we can live and represent to each other--this was shot, without planning, on Superbowl Sunday 1998 in Pacific Beach, California, while the "big media event" was going down a few miles across town at newly christened Qualcomm Stadium. Somewhere between the Superbowl/Republican Convention image of "America's Finest City" and National Enquirer coverage of Heaven's Gate, this homevideo-style short steps, layer by layer, a little lower into San Diego beach culture.
