Saturday Matinee: Wax or the Discovery of Television Among the Bees

wax

“Wax or the Discovery of Television Among the Bees” (1991) is an experimental indie film written/produced/directed by and starring David Blair. The convoluted plot involving Mesopotamian bees, ghosts in the machine, cities of the dead, the Trinity site, the tower of Babel, and a Supranormal Film Society trying to capture footage of the dead is reminiscent of the visions of William S. Burroughs (who makes a cameo appearance in the film). According to wikipedia, Wax is the first independent feature film to have been edited on a digital non-linear system and the first film to have been re-formatted as hypertext and posted on the internet.
