Bruce Conner’s 1976 film Crossroads, named after the atomic bomb test project documented in the footage the film appropriates, luckily shares its name with a 2002 Britney Spears movie. The original Conner film is re-presented here, with each of the 15 explosions in the original being stacked on top of each other, intercut at an increasingly rapid rate. (The final 20 minutes show all 15 explosions nearly simultaneously, 1 frame each). Wordless excerpts from another Britney Spears release, "Till the World Ends," are looped on top of each explosion, a latter-day answer to Terry Riley’s iconic score.

Conner left the source film was relatively untouched, adding only the soundtrack and several transitions. I’ve followed suit, replacing all of Conner’s dissolve transitions with helicopter-shot tracking shots of Britney Spears on the edge of a rocky cliff (from the music video for "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman," the soundtrack to her Crossroads).
