From the artist:
" There Will Be ________ is an experimental narrative film
approaching the history of Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, shot
on location at the mansion. In the late 1920’s, just six months after
the house’s construction, the owner and his personal assistant / lover
were found murdered in a guest bedroom. The pair had recently been
called to testify in the infamous Teapot Dome scandal. The
investigation ended abruptly, and a cover up was widely suspected. The
remaining family members eventually moved out, and by the 1950’s the
house was a regular filming location for Hollywood productions. In There Will Be ________ actors
in period costume perform diverging accounts of the events leading up
to the murder, while speaking only dialog appropriated from scenes of
dozens of feature films that have been shot on location at the mansion.
Although each appropriated statement is completely restaged and taken
out of its original context, the film may evoke for the viewer sporadic
sensations of familiarity or déjà vu as they recognize dialog and
locations from films like The Big Lebowski and There Will Be Blood."
