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. Combining extensive research with meticulous reconstructions, the narrative landscape is composed almost entirely from digitally manipulated film stills from footage shot by Abraham Zapruder, Mark Bell, Robert Hugh, George Jeffries, Mary Muchmore, Otto Nix as well from several colorized still photographs. The work is supplemented with a subsequent black and white FBI film reconstructions.

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.
