Next to Heaven

Washington DC video artist Rob Parish spends his days rummaging through, collecting together vintage film material and editing and overdubbing it to create these fantastic little shorts, posted weekly on his website, Next to Heaven. Some, such as Episode 49 — where a man reminisces about his macho sporting childhood while the video shows a timid boy putting on makeup — are deeply touching, while his other work flits between sharp humour and real poignancy.
