Before and After the Storm

Before and After the Storm

 

At the 1976 Republican National Convention, Ronald Reagan gave an ostensibly impromptu speech about nuclear war and our debt to future generations. This video transposes that speech to the apocalyptic landscape of a desolate beach and a lone podium.

 

Shot in Chicago, summer of 2007.
