Video Remains: Press Kit

In 1992, James Lamb, an off-Broadway actor, requests that his best friend, Alex Juhasz, videotape him. He was dying and wanted to explain his life; he wanted to be remembered. He was also probably suffering from AIDS dementia, so the interview is part rant, part performance piece, part eulogy. After he died in 1993, the 55-minute tape sat on her shelf. What was do be done with this video legacy?

In 2004, Alex resurrected the tape to make the experimental documentary, “Video Remains.” Jim’s interview plays in real-time, to be periodically interrupted by a host of present-day voices and images, interviewees who, like Jim, reflect upon AIDS, death, activism, and video.
