Video Remains


Sponsored by the Department of Women’s Studies

Video Remains

In 1992, James Lamb, an off-Broadway actor, requests that his best friend, Alex Juhasz, videotape him. He was dying and wanted to explain his life; he wanted to be remembered. He was also probably suffering from AIDS dementia, so the interview is part rant, part performance piece, part eulogy.

In 2004, Alex resurrected the tape to make the experimental documentary, “Video Remains.” Jim’s interview plays in real-time, to be periodically interrupted by a host of present-day voices and images, interviewees who, like Jim, reflect upon AIDS, death, activism, and video.

Directed by Alexandra Juhasz
