A highly acclaimed film and deeply felt artwork on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, REPORT by Bruce Conner will be on view at Tarmak22. Born in McPherson, Kansas, by the late 1950s Conner became a pioneering experimental filmmaker, as well as a notable figure of the American artistic scene and of the counterculture movement in the San Francisco Bay Area.
In 1963, Conner, like many Americans, was mourning John F. Kennedy. What started as an initiative to report from an artistic point of view on the aftermath of JFK's assassination eventually became a four year long project. Largely based on stock footage, this film is the 8th and final version, released after four intense years of reworking and coming to terms with the tragic event.
