Black Magic Marker (Dani Gal, 2009, DV-video, color, sound, 27'40")
Two major recorded events structure Black Magic Marker: the voice over of the poet and reggae promoter Henry W. Targowski, who recalls his visit to Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s Black Ark studio in Jamaica, and the visual depiction of Lee Perry's current house in Switzerland. Together, these two situations weave a narrative in which history and present appear inseparable.
Black Magic Marker can be viewed until June 27 on www.vdrome.org.
With an introduction interview with Dani Gal by Xavier García Bardón.
