Interview with a Reluctant Veteran : Anuradha Bhagwati
Interview with a Reluctant Veteran: Anuradha Bhagwati. 19.00 mins 2007
This video interview was created for an exhibit at PS1/MOMA entitled Emergency Room. As one of the participating artists, I was required to create work on a daily basis that responded to something in the media within 24 hours prior to production. In response to the Senate debate, I researched and interviewed an female Indian- American veteran about the proposed troop increase in Iraq. Anuradha Kristina Bhagwati was a Captain in the United States Marine Corps from 1999 through 2004. Shot in a fashion that simulates media sound bites, the video focuses on Anuradhas perspective on violence in the military.
