Favrrite Failurrs #3

A New Year Sadie Benning (1989)

One of Sadie Benning's first videos. She was about 16 when she made this. Can't you just feel it all with her? I can.

Also, last night I went to the Austin Film Society screening of local artist Scott Stark's films, many of which playfully address failure in a beautifully subtle way. His remake of a Jane Fonda workout video planted the idea in my head to remake Sadie Benning's music video for Aerobicide by Julie Ruin. Maybe in another ten years.

P.S. Hey, if anyone else has a Favorite Failure to add, please do!!
