This is a film I made in the spring of 2014. at the time I decided not to try and release the film and it ended up in the vault. It was'nt untill , 2016 that I was convienced to try and have at least one public screening.I felt that the 76min running time to was far to long to try and get it in to festivals and things, so the film just ended not ever being seen .

The good people at EXcinema have invited me to screen this odity of my film career for you.

This could be the only public screening of this work

-Jon Behrens

This film is made from one single 10 min piece of film shot from the 32 floor of the Russle Investment Building in Seattle Washington. I cut the section of film together 8 times with each section being given a different treatment. Each section of film represents a different view. This film can also be viewed as an installation
