Abstract:

Found footage set to Leslie's early 1950's play, based on actual overheard conversations in the infamous Cedar Bar, denizen and drunken think tank of the most important artists, writers, critics and curators of the day. Leslie pitches the play's staged reading in 1997 against vaudevillian singing and dancing, noir classics, recent Oscar ceremonies, pornography and the holocaust to "providing insight into that definitive moment when art spiraled outside of its own frames of reference to describe existence itself."
