CREATIVE DESTRUCTION: The Smyth Brothers

Creative destruction is an economic concept that describes the paradox of progress by attaching evolutionary theory to capitalism. "It's the process of industrial mutation that incessantly revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one." The dualistic nature pairs well with who we are as twins and the stories we try to tell- tales of a people and their pursuit of money. How does this pursuit mutate now that change is the only constant in capitalism?

Por Dinero
31min, 16mm to video, 2012

Quotes from an ancient Mayan hero tie together the life of an undocumented Mexican, his indigenous family, and their dying language.

Rice for Sale
31min, 16mm in-camera edits, 2013

An experimental tale distorting Bali's modern world into a historical account depicting the demise of its former cultural motto, "Rice is Life." Ten wordless vignettes, all in-camera edits, are strung together to compose a two-part mythological venture down the heavenly mountain toward the demonic sea, culminating at the site of the 2002 terrorist bombing.

BIO
Brendan and Jeremy Smyth are 16mm experimental documentary filmmakers who explore the globe in search of cultural oddities. Their interest in visual anthropology has sent them from Mexico to Indonesia showcasing the economic plight of workers through unique methods of storytelling. The twins' work has won multiple awards and screened at notable festivals/venues including Anthology Film Archives, Antimatter, Atlanta, Big Muddy, Chicago Underground, Edinburgh Intíl, and Indie Grits. The two are the directors/programmers of the Haverhill Experimental Film Festival in Massachusetts, soon to open submissions for the third annual event. Currently, the Smyth brothers live in Durham, NC, where they curate a monthly experimental film series known as UNEXPOSED.
