Great portrait of artist Doze Green by my buddy, Detroit-based filmmaker, Mike Popso. I’ve been a fan of Doze for a long time; his artwork was the reason I blind-bought albums like Deeper Concentration 2 in high school. A lot has changed since then! For the last five years he’s been living and working on a self-sufficient farm in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
In “Doze Green Arklandia Dreamstate,” Popso captures the vibrancy of Green’s new life and new work. His upcoming show at the Openspace gallery in Paris opens November 20th and runs until December 20th. Watch the video profile below!
Mexican-American artist, Ramiro Gomez Jr.’s work showcases the contributions of domestic labourers in the Los Angeles area, by placing them into the scenes of luxury they are responsible for maintaining but appear largely absent after their work is done. Part of The Atlantic‘s American Dreams series, this video portrait by Kelly Loudenberg, gives insight into the personal motivation behind his work, featuring Gomez’s parents who are Mexican immigrants themselves, working jobs similar to those he depicts.

Jonny Greenwood composed original music for Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood (2007), The Master (2012), and Inherent Vice (2014). However, Anderson’s latest takes their collaboration a step further. Junun marks Anderson’s first foray into documentary filmmaking as he follows Greenwood to northwest India where he records an album of the same name. Watch, or even just listen to, the trailer below!
Wonderful portrait of artist, Geoff McFetridge, by Dress Code.
