MR. PRESIDENT VISITS NEW YORK
I felt it my patriotic duty to show MR. PRESIDENT in New York City, on election day, November 2, 2004. My most political piece to date, this is how I see my president: blind, reckless and remote-controlled, careening around shouting "God bless America."

A remote-controlled wheel of German storm-troop boots careens recklessly around city streets, while waving wildly the American flag. I used MR. PRESIDENT in Amsterdam and Brussels in the months preceding George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq.

ME AND MR. PRESIDENT STARRING IN THE SHORT FILM THE GENERAL
THE GENERAL is a biting satire on patriotism and military power in post-September 11 America. With the subversive wit of Chaplin's The Great Dictator, director Sietske Tjallingii cuts the Superpower down to size.
