MY SIGHT IS LINED WITH VISIONS

"Four or Five Accidents, One June… (1989), one of two shorts Roddy Bogawa made in the UC San Diego MFA program, begins and ends with the distinct sound of moving between radio channels: the sound of stuttering and glitching, peaking in and out of all the possible worlds of songs, jingles, voices and cadences.  Snippets of recognizable voices, studio-produced sounds or just a regular person talking is heard, before landing on a channel or personality we might want to stay on—the array of sounds make no distinction between the famous and the obscure. This familiar and nostalgic radio experience is reflected in Bogawa’s film, shot in black-and-white grainy 16mm, and set during his summer as a deliveryman for a pharmacy in San Diego."
