In this collaboration between artist Steven Leyba, actress Alexis Perez, and filmmaker Charles Chadwick, a self-effacing ritual occurs. Transubstantiation in this case occurs when self-portraiture is cut up and defaced, and transferred between different media: direct material intervention on the film's surface through hand-painting and hand processing, the defacement of Leyba's self-portraits, and the cutting up of Leyba's body. All of this is united through ritual, which is both documented and actualized through the filmmaking process. Super8/B+W/Hand Processed. Sound by A Tunnel Dialogue.
