Dear Sirs,

It has come to our attention that you have posted to your site the following two films by the artist Pierre Huyghe: One Million Kingdoms, and The Third Memory. We represent Mr. Huyghe and are concerned that these films have been posted without either his or our permission. The installation of these films is central to their integrity, and to encounter them in this context gives the viewer an incomplete understanding of the work. Please remove them from your site immediately.

Yours sincerely,

Rose Lord

Real-life "Dog Day Afternoon" bank robber John Wojtowicz re-enacts the crime which made him famous. Fact, fiction, and memory collide and merge as the re-enactment scenes, scenes from the Hollywood movie, and television news footage of the original robbery are interwoven.
