Cowboys Were Not Nice People (1990)

Back in the day when Non-Linear Editing systems were just emerging, and before Final Cut Pro existed, Larry Kless was optically printing this film; reproducing, superimposing, and compositing found footage, frame by frame.

Artist Statement: History paints a heroic picture of the so-called “cowboys” of history. Using the hero as a metaphor to questions his validity, this film explores the mythical frontiers of western culture and the romanticism of colonialism.

Synopsis: Microsoft or Yahoo? Google?
