Dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y

Belgian video maker Johan Grimonperez randomly strings together archival footage of hijackings and plane crashes, syncing it to portentous readings from Don DeLillo's novels and the cheery strains of Van McCoy's 1975 disco hit “The Hustle.” This 1997 video is supposed to say something profound about our bleak postmodern world, but it's really just the art-house equivalent of Faces of Death. 70 min.
