Tommy Hartung, American, b. 1979. 2014. (48 minutes)

THE BIBLE is an animated sci-fi docudrama narrative about the Old Testament. The video investigates Tommy Hartung's experiences with evangelicalism and draws parallels between the Bible and contemporary events. Throughout the video references to Big Brother, war crimes, and American ideals represent the fall of humanity. Hartung is influenced by experiments in moving images. His scenes are hand-constructed and later spliced with found footage.
