Memory of a Time Twice Lived


Angel Nevarez , Valerie Tevere

Memory of a Time Twice Lived is a video work that merges several filmic genres—music video, documentary, the French avant-garde and science fiction. The project builds a field of relations tying together 20th century mythic heroes, the collection of the Wagner Free Institute of Science, the Mexican luchador El Santo, and the accordion as a nomadic instrument. Shot on location in Philadelphia and Mexico City, this project includes references to the late Chris Marker’s science fiction masterpiece La Jetée (1962) and features an accordionist performing in sites throughout Philadelphia.
