Craig Baldwin in person

Utilizing old kinescopes (filmed records of early TV broadcasts, before the advent of videotape) Baldwin creates an eerie, haunted “media-archaeology” zone for a sci-fi time-travel tale. Throughout this high-octane collage film, live-action actors search for a hidden electromagnetic secret to save the planet from a futuristic war machine inspired by HAARP (High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program). (Craig Baldwin, 1999, 94 minutes)
