Crossing The Line

From my documentary vault I bring you my newest find, Crossing The Line

 

 

In 1962, a U.S. soldier sent to guard the peace in South Korea deserted his unit, walked across the most heavily fortified area on earth and defected to the Cold War enemy, the communist state of North Korea. He then simply disappeared from the face of the known world. He became a coveted star of the North Korean propaganda machine, and found fame acting in films, typecast as an evil American. He uses Korean as his daily language. He has three sons from two wives. He has now lived in North Korea twice as long as he has in America. At one time, there were four Americans living in North Korea. Today, just one remains. Now, after 45 years, the story of Comrade Joe, the last American defector in North Korea, is told.
Based on our work on the two North Korean films over the last five years, VeryMuchSo Productions, in partnership with Koryo Tours, has gained the trust of the North Korean authorities. This has enabled clear and unrestricted access to James Joseph Dresnok and to the North Korean-based families of the other U.S. defectors.

Sometimes artists, through the most simple of interventions, can do something that profoundly sums up how you feel. Justin John Greene has a whole portfolio of pretty goofy paintings, this one is my favorite. I wish I had made it. It was like in the sea of my mirthful misery, the clouds parted, this painting was delivered and elicited a fleeting moment of joy. Also, you can’t beat his ninja-turtle fort tipi replete with Ren & Stimpy dream catchers below.

Pyschedelic Rainbows

 

 

It’s no surprise that everyone at B/D is obsessed with bizarre hippy, psychedelic references in art. However Charles Glaubitz work differs from the usual psychedelic hookas pokas as it mixes in character based imagery more in line with japanese magna. The resulting work is bizarre, funny, and imaginative.

Kamrooz Aram

This Iranian artist living and working out of Brooklyn, NY makes paintings that look like they can only be found on Geocities sites and Google image searches. They have this janky magical pixelated quality that I love in jpegs…
