Based on Actual Event


Based on Actual Event (2003)

Three-channel video installation

Reynold Reynolds's three-channel video installation, Based on an Actual Event, looks at the fictional portrayal of American military forces in 20th century war. While each film simulates an actual event, each new war simulates previous wars as shown in popular films. Conceptions of war become reality through the depiction of war as entertainment.

Reynolds is a filmmaker living and working in New York City. His films have been screened at the Sundance, Rotterdam and New York Film Festivals, among others. He received an MFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts, New York, and has studied film and physics at the University of Colorado, Bould
