After learning our intended gallery had been burned down and my camera mic had other plans for sound, the decision was still to watch these films. A video montage honoring the following inside the last remaining dwelling with a roof at Hidden Hills:
Days Gone Not Forgotten by Jesse Richards
Il Vangelo Secondo Matteo by Istvan Horkay
R.O.O.T.S. by Pinina Podesta
Paradox of the Absurd by Maria Niro
Factory For Sale by Frederic Chagnard and Agnès Hardy
Unconcerned But Not Indifferent by Fred L'Epée and Dimitra Pouliopoulou
Later we watched more films at the Cathedral. Will post the link soon. Thanks -g

The Forgotten Film Gallery is a web based documentary film project and video art installation which plans to showcase a collection of films dealing with interpretations of the forgotten and the indefinite time period during and after the present. The Forgotten Film Gallery will attempt to link the past, present and future using unique areas of the Mojave and Amargosa desert as it's gallery space.
The goal for the Forgotten Film Gallery is to unite the new with the old. Link the past to the future using the remoteness of the desert as the gallery space and the world wide web as a platform to distribute a documentary freely with the public.
By utilizing the lonely desert as an audience. Contemporary artists might continue to create freely without the fear of rejection. Sharing the film on the web will also allow the general public to recognize and value the importance of our often under appreciated past and present natural environment.
Featuring works from video and sound artists:
Barbara De Dominicis
David Sanchez Burr
