David Blair's seminal film 'WAX, or The Discovery of Television Among the Bees' (David Blair, USA / Germany, 1991, 85 min), was one of the earliest examples of how to use inexpensive, digital production methods - including computer animation by the now well-known media theorist Lev Manovich - to construct a long-form, hallucinatory narrative that tied together the first Gulf war, flight simulators, psychic research and bee-keeping.

Followed by a Q&A with the artist.
