Notes:
During WWII, the US Army hired Sach's cousin, Dr. Sandor Lenard, to reconstruct the bones--small and large--of dead American Soldiers. This elliptical work, which resonates as an anti-war meditation, is composed of highly abstracted was imagery and home movies of children at a birthday party. The film was created as part of "For Life, Against the War Again", the Film-makers' Cooperative Collection of 25 films of peace. It is also a trailer for a longer film Lynne is making about Lenard's unusual life in Europe and later in remotest Brazil.
