    [Robert Sandifer murder case #1]

    0:00 Silent B-roll of neighborhood and interviews with passers-by. 12:15 Sound comes in. Jones shoots near The Kohn School, the school attended by the Hardaway brothers (the boys who were accused of killing Sandifer) to find friends and acquaintances who can talk about them. Jones is unable to find an interview subject who can really comment. He later shoots in the tunnel where Sandifer was found dead. The walls are covered in eerie graffiti that often looks like hieroglyphics. 51:30 […]

  • Bongo


    This tape appears to be raw or crudely edited footage (perhaps a very rough cut) from a documentary about the 1992 riots in Los Angeles sparked by the acquittal of the police officers who beat Rodney King. The first 15 minutes are taken up by an interview with Bongo, an African-American artist and business owner in South Central Los Angeles. Bongo’s comments, which are often very passionate and animated, center on the racist mistreatment of African-Americans, particularly African-Americans i n Los Angeles. The remainder of the tape is raw footage shot in Los Angeles following the riots. Most of the shots are of National Guardsmen patrolling the streets on foot and in armored vehicles. These images make Los Angeles look eerily similar to occupied Baghdad.

  • [The 90’s Election Specials raw: Paul Tsongas at Apostolic Church of God #1]

    [The 90’s Election Specials raw: Paul Tsongas at Apostolic Church of God #1]

    Raw tape for The 90’s election specials. No sound until 18:00. Democratic presidential candidate Paul Tsongas makes an appearance at the Apostolic Church of God in Chicago’s Woodlawn neighborhood. This massive, largely black church is full and busy. Its pastor, Dr. Arthur M. Brazier, was an important figure in the Civil Rights Movement as a founder of The Woodlawn Organization. The service starts around twenty one minutes. Tsongas sits next to Dr. Brazier during the service, awkwardly clapping along to the gospel choir. The most amusing part of the tape occurs at thirty two minutes when Tsongas is unsure of what to do upon receiving the collection plate. Brazier sees him and snatches it away.
