HG009 ‘Ammunition’ (Happy Ghosts Movie)

Ammunition takes the viewer on a wild and dreamy ride from the everyday world to the fantastic and beyond. From sublime moments of floating in space through the beauty and harshness of the natural world to jarring explosions and crashes of the American dream. Difficult to place in a genre, Ammunition is a complex work that falls somewhere between music video and video art. It’s an ever moving audio-visual of original music by Happy Ghosts; US 1950’s advertorial films, guides to better living and government propaganda from the Prelinger Internet Archives; and footage and sound captured in an Adelaide backyard ans studio. The film’s catch cry is ‘Beware of Boredom’.
Released August 2007  – Preview copies only (Catalog# AM-024-07)
