Title: Capacity, 2009, 6:05
Capacity takes the hand as a metaphor to look at what has been and what can continue to be the evil potential inherent in us all. Abstract processed video is the visual aesthetic. The emotional story line is carried by the musical composition created by Lou Cohen and Andrea Pensado. Capacity was created in direct response to the call for work for the Shoah Film Collection.
