Laura Parnes’ Blood and Guts in High School (2007) re-imagines punk-feminist icon Kathy Acker’s book of the same title. In Parnes’ interpretation, each video-chapter presents a typical scene in the life of Janie bracketed by U.S. news events, including the Jonestown Massacre and Three Mile Island, from the time period (1978–82) in which the book was written. “Shot with an hallucination Kubrickian eye, Blood and Guts in High School brings a sleek cinematic esthetic to the often ineptly-lensed genre of gallery video, and offers the form a new role: as Hollywood’s unconscious, peeping into the nightmare from which we cannot awake.” (Ed Halter, Light Industry)
