    1986 - 2011 This video was shown at a party we had for Joe the night after he passed away. We had been skating together for at least ten years before he passed. The skating doesn't really kick in until halfway through the video so sit tight. Rest in peace, buddy.

      • Soviet War Memorial (Treptower Park) - In A Berlin Minute (Week 47)

        -- http://MovingPostcard.com -- The Soviet World War Two Memorial in Treptower Park in Berlin is quite monumental - large in scale and meaning. The "Sowjetisches Ehrenmal in Treptow" was conceived by a collective of Russian artists and commemorates the 80,000 Red Army soldiers that died during the "Battle of Berlin" in May 1945. But this is not only a memorial - it is also the cemetery of 5,000 of those soldiers. Several people had recommended this sight to me. And I had mixed feelings about it from the get-go.  On a beautiful spring-like late afternoon this week I went for the first time with two friends. The entire memorial is vast and impressive and it caused me more mixed feelings then and now as I've put the video and sounds together. I'm definitely a pacifist. I don't (usually) believe in attacking other countries, I don't believe in war propaganda or glorifying the military or any kind of violence. It breaks my heart to think of all the lives lost, all the trauma experienced and the cities, countries, cultures destroyed in all the stupid wars. But as we see with Libya right now - there are times when it seems the other countries' duty to step in and stop a regime from hurting its own people or those in surrounding countries. The Soviet troops invaded Germany and Berlin to stop Hitler and World War 2 - just like the Americans did via Normandy and Western Europe - not to mention the French and British with their efforts. What struck me most about this memorial was actually that the 40 ft tall main statue (a man holding a little girl in one hand and sword in the other) stands on a broken swastika. In all the US imagery, I don't think I've ever seen anything like it. Very powerful.  But there's still something weird about a memorial for "the other country" in your defeated country, isn't there? Then there are the negative stories you hear about how Russian soldiers supposedly treated Germans in Berlin, particularly women. Next come the thoughts that the dispute between the USSR and the USA was at the heart of why Germany was divided by a deadly border and that this memorial was in East Berlin. The fact that there are 5000 soldiers burried under this memorial is haunting. The images on the large stones are disturbing. So in the end I tried to reflect my mixed feelings via the audio: the National Hymn of the USSR performed by the 1968 USSR Defense Ministry and the sounds of "Military Battle WW2" from Soundtrack Pro. Now I have confused feelings about that step as well. I'm afraid it may come across as tasteless. But then again there is nothing as tasteless as war and violence itself - yet you have to admire those who are willing to give their lives to protect or free others. It's complicated.

        • Cycles and Revolutions - Concept Reel

          "Cycles and Revolutions" is a documentary investigating the life and times of Jews in Revolution-era and Soviet Russia, presented through both personal and universal lenses. Beginning by creating a picture of the time and lives of Jews in Czarist Russia and their role in the revolution and continuing through life under Soviet rule, we explore the price that Soviet Jewry paid for the Jewish participation in the creation of the Soviet State — namely, the public sentiment and institutionalized anti-Semitic policies of the period. Finally, we examine the last 30 years: the Jewish exodus from and role in the collapse of the Soviet Union. Taken together we hope to illustrate the cycles of cause and effect, oppression and revolution in Eastern European Jewry; and how this combined history has led to the questions of identity facing many ex-Soviet Jews living there and around the world today.
