Kerry Tribe creates primarily video and film installations that explore memory, subjectivity, perception, and doubt. Intensely researched and rigorously crafted, her works often combine documentary and fictional approaches and present objective testimonials as well as more personal elements. There Will Be ___________ (2012) is an experimental narrative film that recounts diverging versions of a famous double murder that occurred in 1929 at the historic Greystone Mansion in Los Angeles. Tribe assembled the dialogue from over 40 feature films that were subsequently shot on location at the historic home.
