This is Lars.
We filmed Lars at his home in Moab, Utah, in July 2017. We asked him to tell us his immigration story.
Two days later he handed us a VHS tape. It contained a second recording, one he had made himself after we'd left.
The result is two discordant retellings of one complicated remembering; a narrative indelibly bound to the myth of the American West, Hollywood, the Atomic Age and the uranium mining enterprise of the mid-twentieth century.
Both iterations were presented as part of PØST LA's Kamikaze series, curated by Forouzon Safari and David Roy: United States to Iran Straight.
