On Friday November 22, 1963 at 12:30pm, the President of the United States is assassinated in Dealy Plaza, Dallas, Texas during a campaign visit. Texas Governor, John Connelly, riding in the jump seats, is also wounded from the gunfire.

Many years in the making, this narrative landscape is a vast montage of manipulated film stills from footage shot by Abraham Zapruder, Mark Bell, Robert Hugh, George Jeffries, Mary Muchmore, Otto Nix and numerous colorized still photographs. The work is supplemented with a subsequent black and white FBI film reconstruction.

The Assassination of John F. Kennedy is part of a tetralogy of pivotal U.S. assassinations from the 1960's and includes Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy and Malcolm X.
