Part of Political Games


Martha Colburn

(US, 1995, video, 2:23)

Martha Colburn is a self-taught film maker with very little knowledge of music. Still this does not deter her from performing in public with her band ‘The Dramatics’, nor from channeling all the rest of her seemingly endless energy into the production of countless films. In fact, there are a lot of body cavities still waiting to be filled. In ‘Asthma’ this is done with smoke. This propaganda film encourages smoking. Isn’t that already forbidden in America? For this film Colburn treated found footage, but she thankfully used other techniques as well.
