Script for Groundless Images

Sanaz Sohrabi

Persian Gulf

13'

2018

Written and edited, mostly, with archival material from the Library of Congress Veterans Video History Project, the film primarily focuses on the interviews gathered from the American veterans of the Persian Gulf War.These video-interviews are themselves archival residues while containing other forms of archival fragments such as photographs and various artifacts which interviewed veterans have collected during their involvement in the war. Sohrabi works with an actor and improvisor to create an auxiliary interview which takes these video-archives both as its method and content to fabricate a parallel story and embed it within the larger body of these video archives.
