AR-02 7HZ ARFORD, Scott & YAU, Randy H.Y. & NINE, Michael 2002 Operating in the legendary Cyclone warehouse space near Hunter's Point in San Francisco, 7hz has functioned as one of the few SF venues that is exclusively dedicated to experimental sound art, and also has served as the live / work spaces (in the truest sense of the term) for Scott Arford (aka Radiosonde), Randy Yau (23five), and Michael Nine (aka Death Squad). During the fall of 2002, 7hz took their show on the road, as Arford, Yau, and Nine embarked on a European tour. This disc is essentially the tour support album, offering an exclusive sampling of each artist's work. Arford's sonic reconstitutions of video static have made for stunning audio / visual performances (almost unheard of in the visually sterile realm of laptop composition). Here, his contributions spit forth digitally corrosive bits of static and noise (which resemble remote control / shortwave detritus) along mechanized grids. Altogether, Arford's tracks resemble the pained electric noise of those collaborations between Zbigniew Karkowski and Pita Rehberg. Yau defines his work as an "action concrete," in which recordings of impromptu vocal outbursts have been dissected and reanimated through a number of electro-acoustic techniques, often sounding like a mutation of Robert Ashley's classic "Automatic Writing" with far more jarring and confrontational results. Michael Nine's work comes out of the Whitehouse / Con-Dom approach of primitive noise assaults as transgressive theater. All in all, an excellent introduction to these San Francisco artists.

GI-01 THE BIRDPEOPLE GITLIN, Michael 2004 Like most well-made documentaries, this 2004 film presents its subject from a variety of angles: birders in New York's Central Park together with telephoto close-ups of their quarry, stuffed birds seen alone and in museum dioramas, a search for the presumedly extinct ivory-billed woodpecker, an affecting text about a woodpecker's nearly successful attempt at pecking out of captivity. What makes Michael Gitlin's film extraordinary is the way it represents birding as a special way of seeing. Close-ups of birds in the field isolated by surrounding branches in soft focus are paralleled by jerky zoom-ins on book pages or stuffed specimens, echoing the way the collector's eye homes in on prized treasures. Paired with the theme of ecological ruin--the sheer number of birds worldwide has declined steeply--the birder's quest is given a melancholy poignancy.
FO-01 THE NEST FOTOPOULOS, James 2003 A midwestern couple moves through the banality of their average existences, but at the same time appear to be under clandestine government surveillance.

The film artfully chronicles the plight of desperatly poor Mexicans seeking a better life in the North. Two brothers, Juan Jose and Marcos leave their family in Mexico to come to the US to find work. Their second attempt succeeds, but only after a near-death trek through the vast Sonoran desert. They finally arrive at the house of their Aunt Silvia who finds jobs for them with her friend Manuel, the Jefe of a large ranch. They are happy, working hard and sending money home to Mexico when tragedy strikes. ?ADONDE FUE JUAN JOSE? depicts the lives of Mexican Immigrants. It is not a fill you'll soon forget.

The short, conceptual pieces are included in every major retrospective of Wegman's art and are essential to understanding his ouevre. The tape includes Spelling Lesson, Dog Duet, Drinking Milk, plus 15 more.
FO-02 FAMILIES FOTOPOULOS, James 2002 Families bears the stylistic traits of his earlier feature-length films but expands the number of characters and locations. Opening with a portentous shot of nearly motionless sheep, the black-and-white film develops in disaffected dialogue scenes interspersed with shots of dreary Midwestern exteriors. The main strain of the narrative focuses on a young man and woman and their prolonged, halting conversations, many of which revolve around death. Yet none of the violence recounted in these exchanges takes place on screen, where life is characterized by the absence of physical contact, robotic soliloquy, and a general sense of forlorn ennui. Recurring throughout the film are repeated shots of the sheep from the opening, dogs or fish in an aquarium, paradigmatically linking annals to the characters and their awkward interactions. Fotopoulos suggests that the titular familial ties refer to larger structures of kinship, and constructs a bleak parallel in the common markers of human and animal existence.
MAT-01 FOOD MATTA-CLARK, Gordon 1972 This film documents the legendary SoHo restaurant and artists' cooperative Food, which opened in 1971. Owned and operated by Caroline Goodden, Food was designed and built largely by Matta-Clark, who also organized art events and performances there. As a social space, meeting ground and ongoing art project for the emergent downtown artists' community, Food was a landmark that still resonates in the history and mythology of SoHo in the 1970s.

CO-01 APHOPHENIA COLUNGA, Jason
PATEL, Vinay
2005 An interest in experimental cinema led Jason Colunga and Vinay Patel to create a unique film. Borrowing from the ideas and research of Carl Jung, Jason and Vinay, express this psychological occurance using the Audio/Visual medium in a kaleidoscopic fashion.
ST-01 CIRCLES SHORT CIRCUIT STRACKE, Caspar 1998-2004 This 1998 Caspar Stracke feature is one of the rare experimental films in 35-millimeter. Stracke describes it as moving in a circle with neither a beginning nor an end; in the version I saw, the credits come in the middle. A lecture on the philosophical and psychoanalytic implications of the invention of the telephone by theorist Avital Ronell eventually turns into a story in black and white about a woman who has a lotus blossom growing in her left lung; at different times this film comes across as documentary, essay, performance art, and silent throwback (complete with intertitles and irises), and the capabilities and rhetoric associated with both computers and VCRs play a part in the continuously shifting and evolving discourse.
VA-02 VIDEO CLIPS VATSKY, Daniel

SAC-01 c.1 CUL DE SAC: A SUBURBAN WAR STORY SUBDIVIDSION PRODUCTIONS 2001 A hard to forget video: a tank, weaving through suburban San Diego streets, indiscriminately destroying a car here, a Winnebago there, a fire hydrant farther down the street. The story ends tragically when the tank driver tries to jump the median on the freeway to escape the pursuing police. When he refuses to give up to the police who storm the tank, ripping open the hatch, he's shot to death. End of the story? Not quite. The Film delves into the man behind the wheel of that tank, Shawn Nelson, and the reasons he took such drastic measures. Along the way, it brings into sharp focus the problems of the everyday American workforce, the evil influences of drugs (in this case, crystal meth) and the obsessions of one man and how they got out of hand.

It s unclear whether this is the finals or what, but it is essentially a guy standing on one side ramp, a couple of feet away from the flat, with the camera on record the hole time. There is some great skating as you would expect from the names listed, but since it is all one uninterrupted shot from the same angle it can be less than riveting at all times. The sound is hypnotic - the familiar noise of wheels wheels rolling over regular 8ft intervals of masonite with silence as the wheels leave the coping, followed by a synchronized Yeah! from the crowd, repeat.

GO-01 HOT AND BOTHERED: feminist pornography GOLDBERG, Becky
For years, the world of pornography has been the domain of men, both as consumers and purveyors  and women were simply objects to be exploited. In recent years, however, more women have taken a greater role in this multi-billion dollar industry, claiming a stake in pornography by infiltrating the misogynist, old boy network. Hot and Bothered: Feminist Pornography profiles several women who are committed to making and supporting pornography, while maintaining their feminist values  as they take on the entire industry, fight sexism, and challenge stereotypes. This candid, provocative and enlightening film features interviews with feminists who have made names for themselves through all aspects of the business  from former performers, who now work behind the camera as directors and producers, to magazine editors and a retail operator, whose million dollar business sells high quality sex items with an eye towards women. Their collective goal is to produce and distribute products that dont degrade, objectify, or humiliate women. Hot and Bothered: Feminist Pornography takes a rare and empowering look into the pornography industry and feminist community to see how they intertwine within the politics and poetics of female sexuality. This film shows how feminist pornography demands to be recognized by the male dominated porn industry, its consumers, and the public, because it allows women to talk about sex publicly and explicitly.

Generations of American children sat in dark classrooms and absorbed wisdom in the form of 16mm educational and social guidance films.

Now, just as you remember them, Fantoma presents this collection of sex education and drug prevention film, ranging in date from the late 1940s to the early 1970s.

GA-01 SURPLUS
Terrorized into being consumers
GANDINI, Erik 2003 Surplus: Terrorized Into Being Consumers is a 2003 Swedish documentary film about consumerism and anti-consumerism, directed by Erik Gandini and edited by Johan Söderberg. It opens with footage of the protests at the 27th G8 summit in Genoa, and revolves around the words of anarcho-primitivist John Zerzan, who claims that destroying property - as opposed to attacking people - is necessary and is not violence. A lot of other people, apart from Zerzan, appear in the documentary, including the person who may be his diametrical opposite, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

The documentary relies heavy on the of fast-paced audiovisual collage-techniques and music, resembling the MTV style of video- and television marketing, the result of this is that the documentary is more impressionistic than purely reporting or fully studying the argument or set of arguments. Another characteristic is its arch use of lip-synching, for example George Bush speaking for Adbusters, or Fidel Castro screaming Steve Ballmer's words "I love this company. Yeah!".
WE-03a c.1 VIDEO WORKS 1970-1999 WEGMAN, William 2006 3 hrs 56 mins
From 1970 to 1977 William Wegman created some of the most innovative and important works in the history of video. These early pioneering tapes were created using minimal technology and just a few studio props, includeing Wegman's canine co/star, the inimitable Man Ray. Consisting of almost 130 works, some no longer than a television commerical, these videos blurred the boundaries between high and low art as well as art and commerce, and have become a major chapter in the histories of both contemporary art and film. This exhaustive 2-DVD comppilation has been assembled by the artist with restored material and contains all of the orignial nie reels as well as two later reels anthologizing works from 1997-1999. Included with the DVDs is an essay, Wegman's Video: Funny instead of Formal, by art historian Kim Levin as well as a definitive chronology of the complete videos.

1957-62 This is a recreation of Harry Smith's proto-psychadelic, multi-projected, live performance put together by his long time protege, Henry Jones. Jones assembled a black and white version of Smith's Heaven & Earth Magic, but Smith always said the original was in color. Could this be a reproduction of that original? He uses colored gels, an antiquated form of color similar to that used in silent films, that together with slide overlays creates a vivid presentation and gives "the strong feel of a magic lantern show with an animated shadow play at its center."

From the chamber frog that builds an elaborate mud nest for protection of its eggs and larva, to the leaf folding frog that endures harsh direct sunlight by protecting itself with its waxy coating, Paraguayan frogs represent all manner of strange and exotic adaptations in their struggle for survival.
PA-01 THE SUBJECT IS SEX PARR, Stephen 2004 Stephen Parr of Oddball Film&Video presents an extraordinary personal romp through the seamy side of Sex in Cinema.

A compilation of performances created entirely from sounds and images generated from nothing but 16mm films and projectors. Synchronizing sound and image, they use often use the physical film reel as a madium, its damage spots and discolorations as rhythm and form. Included is footage of their revolutionary rear screen projection system, the Skinnimascope.
MAD-01 PLAYGROUND MADOW, Lauren 2004 Playground is a film about three NYC teenagers and how they use the urban environment for their own purposes. Rio, a skateboarder, Ashley, a basketball player, and Alex, a breakdancer, are part of a longstanding NYC tradition that often gets overlooked (or condemned): ordinary kids with limited resources who spend everu spare moment playing in ways inspired by the city. As Rio says "I can see how people think it's dumb because they might think you're just riding a piece of wood with some skates on it... but it would be hard to explain to someone that would never ride a board." Interviews and footage of the kids reveal how much more there is to playing that what meets the eye.

JU-01 BAAD ASSSSSS CINEMA
A bold look at 70's blaxploitation films
JULIEN, Isaac 2002 In this groundbreaking documentary from the Independent Film Channel, filmaker Isaac Julien takes us back to the early 70s and the explosion of blaxploitation films, today one of American cinema's most beloved cult genres. The original guilty pleasure, these fun and energetic films had all the action, comedy, sex and groovy music you could want in two hours worth of entertainment.
CR-01 BREATH CONTROL
The history of the human beat box
CRAYCROFT, Jacob
GARFIELD, Joe
2002 An oft-overlooked aspect of hip-hop music gets its due in Breath Control: The History of the Human Beatbox. Beatboxing is the art of producing musical sounds, particularly percussion, without the use of instruments. Filmmaker Joey Garfield traces beatboxing from the early days, when the simple rhythms of Darren "Buff" Robinson helped make The Fat Boys a household name, to the amazing technical skills of such contemporary artists as Rahzel and Scratch of The Roots, and Anthony Rivera, also known as Click tha Supah Latin. As one artist, Chris Jung, explains, beatboxing "stemmed from the need to make music now." It grew out of a necessity to produce music when instruments and turntables were not available. Doug E. Fresh, Biz Markie, and others explain what they brought to the art, while Congo-born vocalist Marie Daulne of Zap Mama expounds on both the universality and the ethnic diversity of vocal rhythm-making

a film about gamers
METZE, Steve 2004 Ueber Goober focuses on the often misunderstood, sometimes controversial, and always-kind-of-geeky world of Gamers. Not the computer kind of gamer, the in-person-dice-rolling-and-sometimes-dress-up-in-costume kind. Metze examines sveral different groups including historical miniatures gamers, role-players, and those known simply as "LARPers". The film also explores opposition from religious groups, negative media portrayals ranging from post-Columbine news coverage to sit-coms and some of the meanest 'man-on-the-street' interviews ever committed to video.

A compilation of educational footage mainly regarding goverment and capitalism totaling around a whole 3 hours. This mainly educational, but somewhat comical 70's type of government education, is packed with information, from respect, power, freedoms, the bill of rights, communism, the military, sonic booms, and even what to do if a nuclear bomb hits. While mostly live-action, there are one or two animations in there, but either way, hopefully it'll be a three hours that you can go away from learning something.

SH-01 CHARM SHAW, Sadie
REED, Sarah

Charm is the debut full length feature film by Sarah Reed and Sadie Shaw, collaborators in both film and music (Bonnot Gang, The Lies, and The Husbands). Though at first glance, the film has all the classic hallmarks of a horror film, it also deals with elements of alienation, isolation and the destructive nature of relationships both friendly and familial. Using imagery beautiful, brutal and surreal, the film follows Rosie as she struggles and ultimately fails to cope with the apathy she experiences all around her. She lashes out, increasingly violently in an attempt to register some kind of reaction from the world around her. With its roots in the horror genre, Charm expands on this theme to create a visually stunning and emotionally charged film experience.

Shot entirely in San Francisco on a budget of $3000 in Super-8, CHARM features a soundtrack with such talents as THE AISLERS SET, DEERHOOF, Members of THE FUCKING CHAMPS AND UNWOUND, THE NEED, THRONES and THE LIES, who all wrote music specifically for the film. The soundtrack is available on 5RC and has garnered rave reviews.

FI-03 MEN & ANIMALS TOUR Preview FINN, Jim
RANK, Dean

Eschewing the facile irony in vogue among their peers, these two young Chicagoans use fragmentary and disparate pairings of image and sound to create thought-provoking commentaries on displacement and alienation in our culture. The strongest of these seven videos is Finn's chilling Super-Max (2003), a tour of maximum security prisons shot from a moving car, their hulking forms framed by telephone poles and power lines that divide landscape and sky. The concluding voice-over, making reference to Lewis and Clark, implicitly equates the European occupation of this continent with imprisonment. Rank's best contribution, Team (2003), turns football into a macho theater of the absurd: in one scene a coach derogates certain uniform numbers as "femme."

McE-01 LUXOR
TRANSFINITE LOOPS
RADIO ISLAND
MCELWEE, Van 1996-1998 LUXOR: Luxor, Egypt, meets Luxor, Las Vegas, calling into question the nature of reality through a meltdown of the real and the replica. Each world is suspended and then reborn in the realm of video as past, present and future merge into one pulsing electronic moment. Luxor is also designed as a single channel installation. 18:00 minutes.

TRANSFINITE LOOPS: Transfinite Loops is a reflection on the mind's tendency to create metaphysical order in the face of chaos. The piece is both a model and a metaphor for that process. Nighttime images of carnival rides appear, mesh and then dissolve into blackness, accompanied only by the sound of wind. The work unfolds like a series of thoughts, as time and space are unraveled and woven back together into intricate knots. 10:00 minutes.

Poetic, mythic, surrealistically beautiful, the visual flow is doubly enhanced by a powerful soundtrack of classical and contemporary musical composition.
MAN-12 AUNTIE MANN, Andy 1976
FR-01 HIDE & SEEK FRIEDRICH, Su 1996 Hide and Seek is a daring exploration into wild, uncharted territory--lesbian adolescence in the 1960's. Lou is a 12 year old girl who daydreams in a tree house, tries not to watch a sex education film, wins a rock throwing contest, and is horrified to discover that her best friend is taking an interest in earrings and boys. Interwoven with Lou's story are the mostly hilarious, sometimes painful recollections of adult lesbians who try to figure out how they ever got from there to here. Completing the picture are clips from a wide array of old scientific and educational films which blend seamlessly with the beautiful black and white images of Lou's world. Hide and Seek is for every woman who's been to a slumber party and every man who wonders what went on at one.

Why should boys have all the fun of breaking laws and physically and mentally abusing friends, family and neighbors? This show features 16mm school films that show how little girls can be just as delinquent as their male counterparts. These films come straight from school archives that have been abandoned as obsolete and may have faded colors, bad splices, missing titles, scratches or dumb narration -- just like you remember!

Program includes:

Staying Away from Strangers

Verbstar

While the blockbuster Star Wars ignited the imaginations of a whole country and brought science-fiction to popular culture, there was an ugly side to this phenomenon. Science-fiction became a gimmick and educational film producers were quick to adopt anything that would get kids' attention. The A/V Geeks present a DVD of educational films that feature sci-fi elements to make their points -- often creating a bizarre, muddled mess of a film. These films come straight from school archives that have been abandoned as obsolete and may have faded colors, bad splices, missing titles, scratches or dumb narration -- just like you remember!

Trigger Happy Harry (1946)
Our Obligation (1960)

Though the era of 16mm educational cinema has come to a close, those quirky films unspooled in the mid-century American classroom continue to fascinate viewers today. And no group of titles is more popular than the safety films. Presenting scenarios that couldn t be depicted in a textbook or described from a lectern, safety films capitalized on the drama and spectacle of death lurking around every corner, in every pair of scissors, in every overloaded electrical cord, on every park bench where a stranger pets a puppy.

The techniques employed by the fourteen films in this collection include: slapstick comedy, docudrama, fantasy, and animation. And no safety collection would be complete without an homage to the King of Calamity, Sid Davis.

Constantly delineating real and imaginary situations, the film describes the inner and outer worlds of Julius, a catatonic, who silently observes the world around him. When Julius remains withdrawn, he is replaced by actor Joseph Chaikin. Julius is later able to talk directly to the camera, delineating some of his feelings about the film and the levels of "truth" in it.

A Summer Opportunity (1969)

This fourth collection of classroom shorts from the A/V Geeks Film Library reveals how sly marketers used 16mm films to shape new generations of loyal consumers. Under the pretense of education, these filmmakers in gray flannel suits promoted their products in the guise of phony newsreels, classroom shorts, and travelogues forerunners of the modern-day infomercial. They depict an American consumer wonderland in which furniture is doused with DDT, a blender is a piece of modern sculpture, and sex goes hand-in-hand with the sale of copier toner.

As an added insight into the world of these real-life Mad Men, THE CELLULOID SALESMAN includes a sampling of rare promotional films not intended for public consumption, such as Freeze-In (a spin-off of TV s Laugh-In, aimed at appliance salesmen) and A Summer Opportunity (in which Alistair Cooke extols the benefits of a career in encyclopedia sales).

CH-01 BEATEOUS CHESLER, Giovanna 2002 A Long Island beauty queen humorously relizes that she is more than just a pretty face. In the days leading up to her senior prom, where she has been nominated for prom queen, Donatella begins to explore her sexuality and intellect.
We follow Donatella through her search for herself in confusing and claustrophobic spaces: a Born Again Virgin meeting ,her delinquent boyfriend's hot rod, the dysfunctional dinner table, a Long Island mall, and finally, to the prom. Throughout her journey, Donatella finds refuge from these plastic surroundings in a poetic natural space of her own imagination where she freely expresses herself and her desires for Mina, a girl in her English class.
This film is the third film in the BEAUTEOUS trilogy, three portraits of three sisters and their relationships with beauty. It is the fictinalization of the experiences of Michele, the middle siser.

STR-02 THE BLVD STRATMAN, Deborah 1999 An experimental documentary about the street drag racing scene on Chicago's near West Side. This is a rambling textured film about obsession. It is about the mythos of speed for its own sake, but it's also about waiting, and it is through waiting that The BLVD exposes community, inner-city landscapes and nomadic experiences of place. The film treats storytelling as a living medium for determining history. And it commands respect, for those who transform cars, or anything else, through passion. 1:04:00 runtime.
STR-03 ENERGY COUNTRY STRATMAN, Deborah 2003 The frenzied detritus of trading floors, smart weaponry and the religious right are woven through the petrochemical landscapes of Southeast Texas. This short video harangue questions land use policy as it serves the oil industry, patriotism as it absolves foreign aggression, and fundamentalism as it calcifies thinking.
HE-01 HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT HEYN, John
KRULIK, Jeff
2001 A close-up view of the heavy metal scene in its heyday (maybe too close), Heavy Metal Parking Lot is an underground classic recorded on video in the parking lot of a Judas Priest concert at the Capitol Center in Largo, MD, in 1986. Director John Heyn wandered around the drunken parking lot scene and barely had to do anything other than hold up a microphone and aim the camera. Packs of plastered kids unfurled homemade Judas Priest banners, sang their favorite Judas Priest songs, played air guitar for the camera, and in general, made incredible asses of themselves. The interviews are pretty simplistic. They ask questions like, "Why are you here?" or "What do you guys think of Judas Priest?" So, the filmmakers were fortunate that the crowd that day exuded so much unbridled enthusiasm and were willing to completely lose it in front of the camera. Other than the interviews and images of fans, this short film features a couple of Judas Priest songs on its soundtrack and less than a minute of concert footage at the end to round out this nearly legendary, no-budget hit.

The project featured a new-model refrigerator that was packed with foodstuffs and medicines deemed representative of the cultural moment and then sealed for future retrieval. This video documents the project, cutting between 1972 television news coverage of the original event and footage from 2000, in which a re-assembled Ant Farm opens the Time Capsule in a public ceremony at The Art Guys Museum in Houston. Says Chip Lord: "We worked with Life and Fortune magazine images from the fifties in our collages, so we were fascinated with contemporary popular culture and media and what significance they would have in the near future."

VANDERBURG, Brad 2000 Watch as the sci-fi-loving deathrock band, BloodHag, brings their message of literacy-through-Metal back to its roots: the silent halls of the venerable Public Library. Join the band as they tour Seattle-area libraries on their mission to encourage kids to read (because "rock fans need to be smarter," as one band member puts it). They play songs called "Isaac Asimov" and "Marion Zimmer Bradley" and famously pelt their audiences with paperbacks during their shows. Even small towns that may have never hosted brutally heavy music before, warily embrace the BloodHag credo: "The faster you go deaf, the more time you have to read."

1992 If you already know and love the northern lights, or if you're simply curious about these eerie but exquisite dancing curtains in the sky, then this is the videotape you want. The Aurora Explained tells what northern lights are, how they work, and why and when they appear where they do. Though accurate and based on current knowledge, the narration is nontechnical, suitable for anyone from sith-graders to science graduates. And the aurora provides its own illustrations, in brilliant scene after scene of stunning arcs and colorful curtains, vivid folds and ghostly flickers. This is aurora as it usually can be seen only under the best viewing conditions, in the frigid chill of subartctic night--but now available for viewing in the warmth and comfort of homes everywhere.

DAVIES, Paul B.
A film about Artificial Intelligence based on the idea that the film itself is a form of AI. The film has a mind of its own, but it doesn't know that - yet. But it's alive and it's curious - about you. It wants to know how you work; it can find out by using image and sound to manipulate your responses - because that's what a film does. And this film knows what it's doing; now it's about to find out what it is. It uses an ever-changing cascade of stimuli; cartoon, live action, music, text - to shock, arouse, amuse and move you, because it needs to know: How Do You Feel.

Living with them in their trucks and seeing the country through their point of view Adrianne JORGE and Tamy OJALA videotaped the everyday lives of these men and women as they drove from state to state, day and night, delivering and picking up the everyday products of our consumer society. A no-budget veritedocumentary, Truck attempts to capture a way of life in which work and survival take on a whole new meaning.

WES-01 A FAMILY UNDERTAKING WESTRATE, Elisabeth 2003 56:46 mins
How do we bury our dead? Switching from funeral homes to home funerals, this documentary follows different families and one "death midwife" as they reclaim the healing effect of personal contribution in a loved one's funeral. Not as grim as Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, the film comments on the sanitization of death and birth and seeks not only to inform people about more natural ways to deal with our dead, but to encourage people to talk about death and how they wish to be buried. Also includes behind the scenes footage of the American funeral industry.

In what ways "yes" and "no" could both be proper responses to the statement, "A cadaver in the classroom is not a dead human being" is the key premise, beautifully presented in the cut-aways, organization, and editing of this piece.

SI-01 A SPY
FREEBIRD
SILVER, Suzie 1992 - 1993 A Spy (4:15) - A Spy: Hester Reeve Does The Doors is a gender-bending and thought-provoking mixture of pure visual pleasure with humorous and unsettling undercurrents. As Reeve lip-syncs to a Doors song ( I am a spy in the house of love. I know the dream that you re dreaming of, I know your deepest secret fear ), we see a new manifestation of Jesus walking in a video field of pulsing rainbows, amoebic forms, and B-movie girls in black panties suggesting the desires we hide from ourselves and others.

Freebird (11:00) - Silver directs and performs all the roles in this raucous and hilarious music video rendition of Lynyrd Skynyrd s Freebird, the infamous Southern rock anthem for an entire generation of 1970s male youth. In this spoof of straight mass culture, Silver flips ironically between roles; from a lesbian proudly proclaiming her sexuality at the Academy Awards, to an in-concert Coors-drinking Ronnie Van Zant, and, finally, to a black-lace lesbian lounge swinger celebrating the wild, colorful world of out visibility. Silver draws upon an amazing array of found footage and special effects to bend genders and genres with spectacular visual delight

BRU-01 PIE FIGHT '69 BRUNO, Christian
GREEN, Sam
2000

In 1969, filmmakers Peter Adair, Stephen Schmidt, Jak Newman and David Himmelstein formed Grand Central Station, an independent film production company. But with no money and no exposure, passion would only go so far unless they made a name for themselves. The spirit of the 60's demanded a direct action, and the San Francisco International Film Festival was just the high society, high profile event they need as a target.
Two dozen costumed radicals descended on the black ties, fox furs and red carpet with one fully loaded pie truck and six cameras to record their outrageous action.
Combining long lost footage with original TV news broadcasts, interviews, newspaper articles and behind the scenes stills, PIE FIGHT '69 documents the hilarity of 300 pies across the face of shocked socialites and irate cops.
Featuring Peter Adair, PDQ Bach and carloads of hippies, PIE FIGHT '69 restores this collision of guerrilla filmmaking and spirited protest to it's rightful palce in underground film history.

KER-01 HARDCORE PLUS Vol. 1 KERN, Richard 1999 This exclusive video collection is jam-packed with the gritty best from noted New York filmmaker, Richard KERN. His sexually-charged work has been alternately dismissed as "violent" and "offensive" by the mainstream press, but embraced by the underground as the perverse standard.
Says Kern, "I've tried it all: crime thrills, drug thrills, sex thrills. Nowadays, I get most of my thrills by offending people with my films. I don't even have to be there. I can sit far away and think, 'someone's watching my video right now and thinking Yeeeeughh!"
Featuring punk rock diva, Lydia Lunch, funnyman Henry Rollins, the exotic genitalia of Kimbra Pfahler and the churning music of both Sonic Youth and Foetus, this urban jungel excursion is guaranteed to satisfy your dark carvings for the unusual.
STEK-01 LOUISIANA BOYS:
Raised on Politics
STEKLER, Paul
ALVAREZ, Louis
KOLKER, Andrew
1992 In this age of electronic town meetings, overnight tracking polls and blow dried, sound-biting, market-tested candidate, there are some places where politics are still practiced as art... though some might call Louisiana's obscene.
LOUISIANA BOYS:Raised on Politics hilariously exposes the Bayou State's favorite pastime as part sport, part entertainment and wholly outrageous. The documentary captures the zaniness of Louisiana's free-spending, high rolling elections, where spicy food and music combine with unforgettable characters to create a carnival atmosphere more like Mardi Gras than modern-day government.
The filmmakers take you on a behind-the-scenes joy ride, from French-speaking rallies to the taping of commericals to the canvassing operations of New Orleans' unique neighborhood organizations, which are like political street gangs.
Louisiana's historic mix of populism, corruption and demagoguery are traced through vintage clips of past grand masters, like Huey Long, the Kingfish; his wilder brother Earl, who dated strippers and bounced in and out of mental hospitals as governor; the singing governor Jimmie Davis; and Edwin Edwards, the most-investigated, most-elected governor ever.
Call it high comedy or low political science, but you'll find LOUISISAN BOYS to be America's Funniest Politics... especially if you don't live there.

WH-01 c.1 BAUHAUS
The Face of the 20th Century
WHITFORD, Frank 2004 50 min
This stunning program looks at the development of the Bauhaus and at the key figures involved in it including the founder Walter Gropius, his successor Mies van der Rohe, László Moholy-Nagy, and Josef Albers. The program also sets the history of the Bauhaus in the context of the political unrest and economic chaos of the Weimar Republic in Germany. The program features numerous experts including Christopher Frayling of the Royal College of Art, architectural historian Charles Jencks, and Dr. Peter Hahn, Director of the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin. Former students discuss their time at the Bauhaus, and the eminent architect Philip Johnson tells how it influenced his work. The program contains rare archival footage of the Bauhaus at Dessau and looks at the architecture of Chicago, much influenced by Mies van der Rohe, who emigrated there after the Bauhaus was shut by the Nazis in 1933. The way our environment looks, the appearance of everything from housing developments to newspapers, is partly the result of this revlutionary school of art and design.

GAUMNITZ, Michaël 2005 PAUL KLEE: THE SILENCE OF THE ANGEL is a visual journey into the work of a major painter of the 20th century by Michael Gaumnitz, an award-winning documentarian of artists and sculptors. Like Kandinsky and Delaunay, Klee revolutionized the traditional concepts of composition and color. By listening to the heartbeat of nature, exploring the science of his time, and studying music and poetry, Klee created his own artistic language, which questioned the nature of form, line, and color. He moved beyond figural abstraction to capture the very essence of movement in his painting. Using the writings of Paul Klee, as well as the events of his life and career, Gaumnitz presents the pictorial universe of a visionary arti

EL-04 SOCIAL ENGINEERING 101 ELSHEIMER, Skip
Generations of American children sat in dark classrooms and absorbed wisdom in the form of 16mm educational and social guidance films. Through the flicker of dim projector bulbs and the warble of optical sountracks a blueprint for better living in the Atomic Age was spelled out in no uncertain terms.
For extra creditm take home this second volume of 16mm behavior modification, ranging in date from the late 1940s to the late 1970s. Some historical, some hysterical and all filled with more important misinformation than you can digest in just one viewing. Because you can never be too polite to too popular, Fantoma is proud to present this collection of conformist culture and sanitized living.

This short revolves around the discomfort after a first date at the Holocaust Museum with a girl who was unaware of the Holocaust.

Zach Galifianakis also appears in the short, sharing about how a variety of diseases aren t so bad to have.

BAS-01 THE SHORT FILMS OF BASS, John

VN-01 FOR LUCIEN VAN NATTA, Erika 2003 For Lucien is an investigation into how fantasy and reality become blurred, through the power of delusion. The character Lucien, who could also be described as a set of ideas, is comprised of three different characters both real and invented. Throughout the piece they border between endearing and pathetic, as they latch onto idiosyncratic, impossible dreams, which have been perverted from mass media influences. Lucien in his three forms is portrayed in varying degrees of escapism. At best he is completely emerged in fantasy, and at his weakest he is confessional and self-loathing. Although these forms of escapism, whether self-prescribed or constructed narratives, are obsessive and somewhat extreme, the fear, self-doubt and depression that drives them to such ends are real and human.

JULY-01 c.1 ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW JULY, Miranda 2005 Award-winning and critically-acclaimed, ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW is a poetic and penetrating look at how everyday people struggle to connect with one another in an isolating modern world.

Christine Jesperson (writer/director Miranda July) is a struggling artist and cab driver who uses her talents and imagination to draw her dreams and objects of desire nearer. One such object is Richard Swersey (John Hawkes, TVs "Deadwood"), a newly-single father of two boys who is hoping for amazing things, yet panics upon meeting the captivating Christine. But in a world where the mundane is transcendent and people seek meaningful connections despite the risk, anything magical can - and will - happen.

JON-04 V.O. JONES, William E.
This piece combines segments of sound from classic foreign language films with segments of picture from gay porn films produced before 1985, making decisions based upon the length of the segments rather than their content. The somewhat arbitrary juxtaposition of diverse found materials often yields surprisingly appropriate results. v. o. suggests a new narrative space and pays tribute to a former era of gay life and cinephilia. The abbreviation of the title stands for version originale, a French term used to denote films exhibited theatrically in their original languages with subtitles, as opposed to dubbed. v. o. includes dialogue in English, Finnish, French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish.
GE-01 THE FOURTH WATCH GEISER, Janie 2000 The ancient Greeks divided the night into four sections; the last section before morning was called the fourth watch. In these hours before dawn, an endless succession of rooms is inhabited by silent film figures occupying flickering space in a midcentury house made of printed tin. Their presence is at once inevitable and uncanny. A boy turns his head in dread, a woman s eyes look askance, a sleepwalker reaches into a cabinet which dissolves with her touch, and hands write letters behind disappearing windows. The rooms reveal themselves and fill with impossible, shadowed light. It is not clear who is watching and who is trespassing in this nocturnal drama of lost souls.

HAUGSE, William
PEREZ, Richard
SEKLER, Joan
2004 The 2000 presidential election's chicanery is explored in a 50-minute docu from Joan Sekler and Richard R. Perez --a powerful piece of agitprop filmmaking seemingly designed to re-ignite a fire under Democrats and perhaps make Republicans take an honest look at their party's actions. Media outlets largely dropped coverage of the election after the Supreme Court decision; remaining desire to investigate was muted in the post-9/11 mood of national unity.

GREENWALD, Robert 2004 The War on Iraq, filmmaker Robert Greenwald chronicles the Bush Administration's determined quest to invade Iraq following the events of September 11, 2001. The film deconstructs the administration's case for war through interviews with U.S intelligence and defense officials, foreign service experts, and U.N. weapons inspectors -- including a former CIA director, a former ambassador to Saudi Arabia and even President Bush's Secretary of the Army. Their analyses and conclusions are sobering, and often disturbing, regardless of one's political affiliations.

JON-05 All Male Mash Up JONES, William E. 2006 William E. Jones s new body of work was inspired by his parallel career in the gay adult video industry. In the course of viewing hundreds of hours of porn, he has developed a fascination with its marginalia: establishing shots revealing urban landscapes of the recent past, charmingly inept dialogue scenes, and close-ups of performers, many now dead. This material, while of no particular commercial use, can be seen as an invaluable document of a lost world of eroticism and sociability. All Male Mash Up was the main video in Jones s solo exhibition, There should be a new word for happiness at David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles; it has also been shown at Mix New York, Flanders International Film Festival, Ghent, Belgium, and the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.
FMC-01 For Life Against the War... Again The Film-Maker's Collective 2007 25 Filmakers create a cinema for peace.
In 1967, with the Vietnam War escalating wildly, an invitation was issued to filmmakers to create works running under three minutes in protest against the accumulating carnage. The original organizers chose the rubric For Life, Against the War, and eventually compiled sixty films from the likes of Robert Breer, Shirley Clarke, Storm De Hirsch, Ken Jacobs, Larry Jordan, Jonas Mekas, Stan Vanderbeek, and many others. Now, decades later, an invitation to protest yet another war seemed sadly urgent, inspiring the New York Film-makers Cooperative to ring the clarion once . . . Again. The response was overwhelming, with submissions from several generations of artists unified by a singular disgust for the war in Iraq and the foreign policy that perpetuates it. Compiled with works from the overtly angry to the formally forceful, For Life, Against the War boldly announces that artists can take a stand, again and again. -- Steve Seid, Curator, Pacific Film Archive, Berkeley Art Museum

BIR-01 Stellbar Biren, Jordan 2004 Through the domain of the hyper-personal plumbed from vaporous sensations of a paradisiac past That ochre, balmy land where light shimmers endlessly through an amaranthine haze through breaches of subcutaneous horror that rise inarticulate and ghost-like within a disturbing eloquence of images, sound, and text, Stellbar remains as that indefinite moment of sublimity, clothed in a serene surround of lightless days, and soft luminous evenings, where, bejeweled and rapturous, to all things and everything, the end then drifts back over the beginning. My intent in Stellbar is to purposely tread that gossamer line between the vulnerable and the arrantly sentimental. Hyperbolic melodrama envelops material culled from the treachery of personal narrative, brooding landscape, and mundane occurrences. An impenetrably interior text hangs in delicate balance with shadowy gloom. And a soundtrack eliciting the gratuitously dramatic and vaguely disturbing underscores the entire piece. Yet, with no transcendent moment to its temporal unfolding, narrative enunciation evaporates. Like all my work, Stellbar seeks that space in the chasms of contextual breach through which the more ineffable pushes through.
BIR-02 My Mother's House Biren, Jordan 2006 . My Mother s House tracks a home emptied of its reassuring order, but not the phantom memories. It s like a Thomas Kinkade painting with a chill factor.
Steve Seid BAM/PFA

The fear comes from knowing that the slightest mistake in the re-telling threatens to crack the façade and make the memories crumble into a dust finer than the one on the furniture. The loneliness and corrosive melancholy come from the trickle-down simulacra of parlor sets and Reader s Digest Thanksgivings. The insolence of others is in not getting it right; in not realizing how fucking important getting it right is to the scattered, desperate and solitary foot soldiers for an empire of passed-down tea cozies and empty nests.
Ivan Lozano Cinematexas 11
BIR-03 From Here Home Biren, Jordan 1999
BIR-04 My Mother's Family Biren, Jordan 1993 . My Mother s Family is a whimsical fairy tale of stasis. Still images simulating a family album contain an impenetrable secret, revealed only by the text that follows.
Steve Seid BAM/PEA
HA-02 c.1 Free to Be... You and Me Invitational Hallett, Nick 2006 Recognized as an important cultural document of the shift in values our country experienced during the 1970s, Free To Be...You and Me (originally a book and concept album) stirred conversation among people of all ages on hitherto unspoken issues like divorce, media awareness, and, perhaps most cohesively, the identity politics of gender and race. More than twenty film and video artist were invited to rework, restage, respond to, satirize, criticize, or in their own way create short works inspired by the original and all-too-memorable segments, including It s All Right to Cry, William Wants a Doll, Ladies First, and Parents Are People.

FI-08 c.1 LA TRINCHERA LUMINOSA DEL PRESIDENTE GONZALO FINN, Jim 2007 La Trinchera Luminosa del Presidente Gonzalo has the look of a Maoist home movie from the 80 s. Shot in Hi-8 video in New Mexico, the film is one day in a Shining Path women s prison cellblock in Peru. After capture, the Gang-of-Four Maoist revolutionaries basically ran their cellblocks as if they were training camps. Heavily researched, the film draws from many sources including video footage from the prisons and interviews with Shining Path militants and their leader Chairman Gonzalo, the former philosophy professor Abimael Guzmaån. It follows the inmates organizing classes, marches, criticism sessions, a dance party, and playing scenes from a Navajo-language Macbeth.

While each film has its own rules and ideas, the overall metaphor is a basic one: it is very easy to help a filmmaker. Be a part of your community. Buy one lunch today. Mike Plante

VAS-01 VASULKAS COMPILATION VASULKA, Steina and Woody 2007
excerpts from the following works:. 
The Commission 
1983, Woody Vasulka
An ambitious narrative in operatic form that blends video effects and electronically manipulated sound with stylized docu-drama. Based on the real-life drama of Niccolo Pagnini, the 19th century violinist and composer (Ernest Gusella), and his contemporary, Hector Berlioz (Robert Ashley); the work addresses the exploitation of genius, the artist as tragic hero, and the historical exploration of inspiration in the Romantic tradition.--Bob Riley, FOCUS: Steina and Woody Vasulka (Boston: ICA, 1986) 
 
Lilith 
1987, Steina in collaboration with Doris Cross. 
In Lilith -- a name that evokes biblical and mystical references -- Steina alters and manipulates the face of a woman (painter Doris Cross) so that it is submerged within a natural and technological landscape. Employing the imaging techniques of focal plane shift (altering the depth of field) and frame grabbing (a succession of frozen images), she creates a constantly shifting visual field in which an image appears to exist in a constant flux of temporal and spatial planes. The woman s electronically distorted speech adds a further haunting dimension to this almost sculptural fusion of human figure and landscape.--Marita Sturken

Art of Memory 
1987, Woody Vasulka
Art of Memory is a major work, an original and mature articulation of Vasulka s inquiry into the meaning of recorded images. Constructing a haunted theater of memory from a spectacle of filmic and electronic images, Vasulka collapses and transforms collective memory and history in an enigmatic space and time. The monumental landscape of the American Southwest is the mythic site onto which he inscribes newsreel footage of war -- ghostly images that become malleable, sculptural forms through constant electronic transmutations.--Electronic Arts Intermix

In the Land of the Elevator Girls 
1989, Steina and Woody Vasulka 
In the Land of the Elevator Girls uses the elevator as a metaphorical vehicle to reveal an outsider s gaze into contemporary Japanese culture. The continual opening and closing of elevator doors serves as a succinct formal device, as the viewer is offered brief glimpses of a series of landscapes -- natural, urban, cultural and domestic. Doors open onto doors to reveal layers of public and private vision, transporting the viewer from theatrical performances and street scenes to an elevator surveillance camera s recording of everyday life.--Electronic Arts Intermix

Warp 
2000, Steina 
Steina s long-running investigations into video-effects technology and performance come together in this recent tape, in which she slowly approaches the camera, her body warping this way and that.--Electronic Arts Intermix

ARTP-01a c.1 TRISHA BROWN: EARLY WORKS 1966-1979 ARTPIX NOTEBOOKS 2004 Trisha Brown, one of the most acclaimed choreographers of contemporary dance, first came to notice in New York in the 1960s. Along with like-minded artists, Yvonne Rainer, Steve Paxton and Simone Forti, she pushed the limits of what was then considered appropriate movement for choreography and changed modern dance forever. Founding her own company in 1970, Brown developed her own choreography and style with her unique ideas of movement. The first DVD of this set of two presents film and video footage by filmmakers, including Babette Mangolte, Carlotta Schoolman and Jonathan Demme, of eighteen of Brown's major performances from 1966 to 1979.

Out of this year's auriferous batch of almost 400 manifestations of moving image making, our Festival Judge signed on to help in the brutal expedition of distilling the many to the few. Her generosity of spirit and heroic gift of taste, time, and cheer throughout the should-be tedious judging process finds the Film Center sincerely indebted. Even toward the end of the grueling judging process, her portrayal of the "intrepid-martyr-convinced-you're-doing-her-the-favor," was wholly convincing. In fact, it was a flawless performance. She claimed to love these Northwest-made marvels, and we have no reason to doubt it. Thanks Jill.

The Northwest Film & Video Festival has, for 29 years now, existed to nourish Northwest filmmakers. Our success in this venture has the positively Darwinian side effect of nourishing film watchers too. Inspiration is both the Festival's goal and gift and these filmmakers have the creative capital to give in overwhelming portions. Sample the bounty. You'll get your fill and go away hungry.
SE-01 THE DRIFT SEARS, Kelly 2007 A journey into space goes awry and the fallout of this mission becomes intimately linked with the counter-culture revolution at the end of the 1960s.

Obsessively collected images found at thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sales are snimated and collaged to create an alternate American aeronautical and cultural history.

SE-02 DEVIL'S CANYON SEARS, Kelly 2005 Devil's Canyon is a speculative narrative created with abandoned images of the American West. Mechanical horses, a doomed automobile town, and tragic cowboys mark the telling of this tale.
A fable of a rejected cowboy grows out of a landscape destined for tragedy that is compiled from discarded magazines and encyclopedias from thrift stores and garage sales.
Based on the depressed landscapes of desert towns in southern California, Devil's Canyon inhabits the space between film and photography, fiction and history.

LIU-01 OFFICER TSUKAMOTO LIU, Ling 2006 In 1970, Ron Tsukamoto, one of the first Asian-American police officers in the country, was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop.

ARTP-03 ROBERT WHITMAN: PERFORMANCES FROM THE 1960S ARTPIX Notebooks 2003 In the 1960s a group of New York painters and sculptors propelled their art into three-dimensional space and moved it through time, creating radical new forms of artists' theater. Working with each other in downtown lofts and found spaces, these artists injeted new sources of energy and innovation into the theatrical experience.
Robert Whitman created some of the earliest and most important performance works of the 1960s. In his performances, the poetic and often surprising interaction of film, lights, sound, live performers, props, and objects that take on a life of their own create a dense visual, non-narrative dramatic structure.
Included is original footage of The American Moon (1960) and Flower (1963), both filmed by Whitman as notes to himself, and short documentaries about the works- featuring interviews with Trisha Brown, Jim Dine, Simone Forti, Claes Oldenburg, Lucas Samaras, and the artist. A recent performance of Prune Flat (1965) is accompanied by an interview with Whitman on the piece. A bonus video presents Ghost, Whitman's latest theater work, first performed in September 2002, with notes by Lynne Cooke and Arne Glimcher.
ZO-01 FULLY AWAKE: BLACK MOUNTAIN COLLEGE ZOMMER, Cathryn Davis;
HOUSE, Neeley
2007 Tucked in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Black Mountain College (1933-1957) was an influential experiment in education that inspired and shaped 20th century American Art. Fully Awake: Black Mountain College is a documentary film that explores the college's progressive approach to education and its long-term impact on thelives of those who experienced the school. Highly democratic and faculty owned, BMC promoted practical responsibilities and the creative arts as equally important components to intellectual development. During WWII, BMC was a safe haven for Josef and Anni Albers, a refuge for the American Avant-Garde (Franz Kline, John Cage, Buckminister Fuller, Merce Cunningham, Robert Creeley, Jacob Lawrence, Willem de Kooning, Robert Rauschenberg, and M. C. Richards, and the site of Buckminster Fuller's first geodesic dome and John Cage's first 'happening.'

1996/97 10 min

Lohdustusseremonia / Consolation Service
1999 23:40 min

Rakkus on Aarre / Love is a Treasure
2002 55 min

A man materializes out of nothing in a dimly lit room; a young woman's anger rages through her apartment in the form of a hurricane; a group of friends falls through the ice on a winter lake and sinks into the frozen world of the drowned. Using the moving image as medium, these films and cinematic installations explore and experiment with narrative storytelling. The films deal with separations, teenage girls sexuality, relationships among family members, mental disintegration and death. They investigate the processes of perception and the attribution of meaning, while the installations break down the story and divide it across the installation space . The stories are based on interviews and research, but are generated by the imagination- incorporating realistic settings with fantastic events.

ARTP-04 DIVERSE DIALOGUES ARTPIX 2003 From 1994 to 1998, DiverseWorks, an alternative art space in Houston, Texas, presented DiverseDialogues, a performance and exhibition program that brought nationally recognized artists to Houston for extended residencies. Interacting with varied social and cultural communities in Houston in addition to more than thirty organizations around the country, DiverseDialogues resulted in seventeen performances and exhibitions which are documented in this publication, both on DVD as well as in a printed catalog detailing the events and the artists. Many of these artists created new works with strong political and social statements at a time when publicly funded arts in the United States were under siege. This DVD is a reminder of the importance of the voice of the artist and the record of the innovative creative process which supports that voice.

Artists included are Elia Arce, Jaime Bailleres, Waldo Bien, Gabriel Cardona, Julián Cardona, Joe Chvala and The Flying Foot Forum, Jim Clarage, Dave Darraugh, Guillermo Gomez-Peña, Pat Graney Company, Robert Henry Johnson Dance Company, Philip Mallory Jones, Rhodessa Jones, Brian Jucha and Infernal Bridegroom Productions, Joe Lambert and Nina Mullen, James Luna, Tierney Malone, Robbie McCauley, David McGee, Tere O Connor Dance, Joyce Pensato, Queer Artist Collective, Lázaro Saavedra, Manuel Sáenz, Roberto Sifuentes, Carl Stone, Mary Ellen Strom, Aurelio Suárez Nuñez, and Victoria Vesna.
ZI-01 LAS POZAS: Steps & Falls ZIEBELL, Robert;
SHUMATE, Anthony Thompson
ARTPIX
2006 An interactive virtual tour of the fantastical surrealist garden created by the iconoclastic British aristocrat and poet Edward James (1907-1984). A visionary patron and friend of the European surrealist artists, James supported projects by Salvador Dáli and sat for portraits by René Magritte and Man Ray while also amassing a major collection of surrealist art. In the late 1940s James moved to Mexico where, over a twenty-year period, aided by his friend and collaborator Plutarco Gastélum, as well as a score of local craftsmen, he built architectural follies next to a cascading waterfall and several pools in a forty acre tropical rain forest site. This interactive DVD-ROM (for Mac or PC) by Robert Ziebell and Anthony Thompson Shumate contains over twenty 360º virtual tour Panoramas with links to video clips that allow the exploration of this mysterious and fascinating Garden of Eden. LAS POZAS is located in the Sierra Madre mountain village of Xilitla, San Luis Potosí, Mexico.

OT-01 XPERIMENTAL EROS LAWRENCE, Noel
OTHER CINEMA
2007 Exploring realms both sacred and profane, XPERIMENTAL EROS invokes a shimmering fantasia of celluloid sensuality for the pleasure of our largest sex organ the brain.
Using exotic tropes and erotic footage from the world s oldest genre, our program of ardent auteurs spin grindhouse dross into arthouse gold with perverse panache.

Be it tales of sexual obsession, rejected letters to Penthouse Forum, or the Mr. Nude Trucker Contest of 1976, no subject is taboo... nor above deconstruction. X-EROS strips bare the spectacle of sex in cinema, poeticizing the cinematic language of the body.

Six contemporary film artists who take us into surreal worlds of delirium and paranoia
The reigning proponent of cut-and-paste, LEWIS KLAHR (Lulu, Altair,Pony Glass) nourishes intensely private visions on the compost heap of collective unconscious through old magazines, comic books, and cocktail iconography.

Complex, poetic, and pervaded by themes of loss, JANIE GEISER (Immer Zu, Lost Motion) simultaneously creates and deconstructs fantasies through doll-like figurines, cut-outs, and found objects in her cryptic narratives.

JIM TRAINOR s handmade animations (The Bats, Moschops) explore the inner lives of animals that appear strangely self-aware even as they instinctually copulate, feed, fight, kill and die.

The Bay Area collective of RODNEY ASCHER, SYD GARON, and ERIC HENRY conjure diabolical visions with digital savvy, accompanied by the manic music of Buckethead and DJ Q-Bert (Wheel of Torment, Sneak Attack, Somebody Goofed)







GRE-02 THE RAINBOW MAN / JOHN 3:16 GREEN, Sam 1997 the breakthrough documentary by Academy Award Nominee Sam Green (THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND).

Millions of Americans have seen Rollen Frederick Stewart, a.k.a. "Rainbow Man", who achieved notoriety during the late 70's by appearing in the crowd at thousands of televised sporting events wearing his trademark rainbow-colored afro wig. Later - after he became a born-again Christian - he added a sign reading "John 3:16". Over the years, grabbing the attention of the media became an obsession for Stewart. He abandoned his home and marriage to roam the country living out of his car, studying TV Guide each week in a never-ending quest to stay televised... with tragic consequences.

BALD-02 TRIBULATION 99: Alien Anomalies Under America BALDWIN, Craig 1991 Upon its release in 1991, TRIBULATION 99 became an instant counter-culture classic. Baldwin s pseudo-pseudo-documentary presents a factual chronicle of US intervention in Latin America in the form of the ultimate far-right conspiracy theory, combining covert action, environmental catastrophe, space aliens, cattle mutilations, killer bees, religious prophecy, doomsday diatribes, and just about every other crackpot theory broadcast through the dentures of the modern paranoiac.

A delirious vortex of hard truths, deadpan irony, and archival mash-ups industrials, graphs, cartoons, movies from Hollywood B to Mexican Z TRIBULATION 99 constructs a truly perverse vision of American imperialism.
Also! Two early rarities from Baldwin:

ROCKETKITKONGOKIT: This kaleidoscopic collage-essay traces an alternative history of post-colonial Congo, the CIA, and military adventurism.

WILD GUNMAN: A dense montage of cowboy iconography, advertising campaigns and pop culture imagery within an interactive penny-arcade game.
KU-01 SINS OF THE FLESHAPOIDS KUCHAR, Mike 1965 Along with Anger's SCORPIO RISING and Warhol's CHELSEA GIRLS, Mike Kuchar's SINS OF THE FLESHAPOIDS remains one of the most influential films of the '60s American Underground. Mike and his brother George (who co-wrote FLESHAPOIDS), were the godfathers of bargain basement cinema, pioneering a hilariously campy, lurid style between Ed Wood exploitation and Douglas Sirk melodrama.

Set a million years in the future, after The Great War has scourged the planet, mankind has forsaken science for self-indulgence in all the carnal pleasures afforded by art, food, and lust. Work is left to a race of enslaved androids. One rebellious male robot (Bob Cowan) tires of pampering his lazy masters, and joins the humans in sin. The future never seemed so ridiculous

As a bonus, we present two classic featurettes from the Kuchar catalog. THE SECRET OF WENDEL SAMSON stars Pop artist Red Grooms in a dark, surreal psychodrama of sexual desire and the entanglements of intimacy. THE CRAVEN SLUCK tells a torrid tale of adultery and flying saucers.
ZI-02 THIS STATE I'M IN ZIEBELL, Robert 1990 A Texas Wizard of Oz- the "true" story of Truey Kemah Shivers, a Texas teenage girl full of adolescent wonderlust and curiousity who rows up the Gulf of Mexico to the mythical city of Houston.

2002-2007 Eight Experimental shorts exploring vision, relationships and communication, often through the use of food or technology.


Bottom Feeder, 1:40 mins, 2007
contrasts playful images of gummy worms dropping into water, people diving in to retrieve them and an audio sampling from a video that was downloaded from youtube.com of Brittany Spears philosophically discussing her frustration with her life.

Dragon Style, 2:15 mins, 2007
A new lens in the form of a balloon filled with our own air is placed both in front of the camera lens and the video projector lens. This physical lens functions as a metaphor for our personal lenses of memory and perceptions. The audio is of a small child telling a fantastical story.

Cheese Puff, 2:05 mins, 2006
an experimental video about our relationship within the context of the ultimate junk food, cheese puffs. IN this work we plunge through water and cheese puffs, while never touching. The cheese power and oils eventually fall from the puffs making the water cloudy and thick. Through the use of irony we explore our relationship with each other and our culture.

Knot Tied, 4 mins, 2006
When a couple gets married they "tie the knot" but in this video the couple has no knot as the yarn unravels from the center of nowhere. The knots are being untied from their huge maess at the beginning and end of the video. An exploration of the idea of gender roles and relationships that are attached and unraveling at the same time.

Coffee & Milk, 2:45 mins, 2005
an experimental video that explores communication and sexuality through the metaphor of everyday items- coffee, milk, and children's music. Our lives are transformed into something cinematic and larger than life. Images of blowing milk into coffee and blowing coffee into milk are given an unexpected point of view because the camera is placed underneath us.

air-hunger (ceiling), 3 mins, 2003
aie-hunger comes from a medical condition, Kussmaul Breathing, which is the rapid, deep, and labored breathing of people who are in a diabetic coma. The project explores issues of communication, sexuality and trust in relationships through the metaphor of what is traditionally seen as a children's activity- chewing bubble gum.

Lick,1:40 mins, 2002
consists of 3 elements: a video image of a male mouth licking a female hand, generic sound effects of creatures screaming taken from internet web sites that advertise "free sound effects," and the identifying title of the sound effect which is being heard. This parody on horror films examines technology and how it influences our relationships with each other.
KE-02 FIVE VIDEO PIECES KENDALL, Adam 2005 Contains 5 full-length a/v pieces from 2004 and 2005. Includes music by Vortex, NOMAH, and Adam Kendall.



1.Cerro Tower and the Jericho Drum (1:29) (Music by Adam Kendall)
The Cerro water tower (video) was an icon from Kendall's childhood. It was part of an industrial site on Robbins Lane, the dividing line between Jericho and Syosset on Long Island, NY, and was razed late in the summer of 2004. The Jericho Drum (music) refers to a mummified body hidden in a chemical drum for three or four decades. It was discovered around 2000 in a crawlspace in a house down the street from my childhood home in Jericho. Presented at the Synaesthesiologists' Global Audio Visuals Now segment of the 2004 New York Video Festival.

Through found paintings and film clips projected onto the house's architectural elements, the resulting video collage shows us what one reviewer calls a process of "zombification."

2007 DVD-9, 143 min, PAL, 4:3
This DVD magazine sheds light on contemporary and emerging art in Tehran, concentrating predominantly on an analytical stance in times of waiting. Waiting for the future may be expressed as yearning or depression, or it may appear as a long, protracted period in which past and present are analysed in depth from a personal and post-colonialist viewpoint.

BA-02 SONGS OF PRAISE FOR THE HEART BEYOND CURE DUKE, Emily Vey
BATTERSBY, Cooper
2006 14 mins
Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby return to the episodic structure of their earlier works Rapt and Happy, Being Fucked Up and Bad Ideas for Paradise. As with earlier works, Songs of Praise takes on difficult, often painful subject matter. Themes of addiction, violence, the destruction of the natural world and the agonies of adolescence are woven through the work, but as Sarah Milroy writes for the Globe and Mail, the work is "anything but depressing... [it is founded in] a sense of wonder at the endearing weirdness of life and all the vulnerable, furry little creatures immersed in it (especially us)."

Experience of contemporary life in the face of moral, physical and environmental degradation.

NEG-03a NEGATIVLAND: A BIG 10-8 PLACE NEGATIVLAND 1983/1989 New Reissue
This difficult-listening conceptual suburban epic, Negativland's third-ever release, was their first-ever concept album, taking the listener on a surreal journey through the high and low points of their home turf in Northern California's Contra Costa County.
It's not just a record anymore, it's an early '80s testament to keeping your ears open in suburbia. And on headphones, it's Superbia!
NEG-O3b NO OTHER POSSIBILITY NEGATIVLAND 1983/1989 60-minute bonus DVD of Negativland's first foray into video, NO OTHER POSSIBILITY, featuring material shot before, during, and a few years after A BIG 10-8 PLACE" was released. This early long-form video, made in the early-to-late 80s, is designed as a stream-of-consciousness TV channel nightmare, constantly switching from one curious tableau to another. You'll see live concert footage, animation, cable access (from Negativland's short-lived weekly TV show), evangelists, an automotive giveaway contest, children dressed as toast, giant cigarettes, and a kid who's thinking about girls playing drums.
NEG-04a OUR FAVORITE THINGS NEGATIVLAND 2007 Twenty-seven years of the group's "greatest hits" have become all-new moving pictures in this amazing, years-in-the-making package. Created with 18 other filmmakers from all over the USA, the film takes Negativland's sound explorations into the world of film and video. What emerges is a darkly cracked look at 21st century America, juxtaposing paranoia, torture, control, power, guns, fear, suicide, cola wars, mental illness, and intellectual property issues with the lighter side of dopey advertising, cartoon characters, cleaning products and Jesus.

Included:
Time Zones * THe Mashin' of the Christ (Christianity is Stupid) * Gimme the Mermaid * The Bottom Line * Greatest Taste Around * Drink it Up * U2 * Guns * Favorite Things * Yellow, Black and Rectangular * Freedom's Waiting * Truth in Advertising * Humanitarian Effort * Over the Hiccups * Taste in Mind * Why is This Commercial * Aluminum or Glass * No Business . . . and more!

IMC-01 Ralph Nader & Patti Smith: AWAKE FROM YOUR SLUMBER HUDSON MOHAWK INDEPENDENT MEDIA CENTER 2008 "Awake From Your Slumber" brings together two visionaries:
citizen-activist Ralph Nader and punk poet Patti Smith, in a powerful
dialogue of war and peace. Touring together as the Democracy Rising Peace
Tour, Ralph and Patti make the case against the Iraq war and the
corporate takeover of our democracy. Produced by the Hudson Mohawk
Independent Media Center, AWAKE mixes image, music and spoken word to
strip away the facade of political lies and reveal the annihilation of
civilization, war profiteering, the unseen dead, and the unheard cries of
motherhood. "Awake From Your Slumber" is history lesson, poetry reading
and rock concert. Above all, it is an inspiring, mesmerizing, and deeply
moving call to action, showing the power of the people to make change.
Special features include three additional songs by Patti Smith, an
interview with Ralph Nader by Amy Goodman, and additional information
about Ralph, Patti, Democracy Rising and the Hudson-Mohawk Indy Media Center.

IMC-02 WAR & PEACE TRILOGY HUDSON MOHAWK INDEPENDENT MEDIA CENTER;
DEMOCRACY NOW!
2003-2004 Includes three documentaries, "Independent Media in a Time of War", "Voices Against War: F15 NYC," and "Women's Fast for Peace."

Part scathing critique, part call to action, "Independent Media In A Time Of War" makes a compelling argument that the news media has failed to represent "the true face of war." Narrator Amy Goodman criticizes the refusal to report civilian war casualties during the 2003 Iraq invasion and the new phenomenon of "embedded reporters," as examples of a pro-military bias in the corporate media. (29:00 mins)

"Voices Against War: F15 NYC" Chronicles the experience of "ordinary" people on the streets of Manhattan as they joined millions around the globe in "The World Says No to War" protests. (21:43 mins)

"Women's Fast for Peace" with the invasion of Iraq looming,, more than 125 women in upstate New York fasted to create a culture of peace rather than of war. (29:00)

MAN-25 c.1 MARK LOMBARDI: FEBRUARY 28, 1997 MANN, Andy 1997 56 mins

Lombardi is most well-known for his "narrative structures," or flow charts, depicting networks of criminal conspiracies, both political and financial. He worked as curator of the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston from 1974-1976, and then as a reference librarian. His addiction to information led him to create these charts in order to organize and visualize the connections hidden within the plethora of information he absorbed. In the year 2000, at the peak of his professional success as an artist, he purportedly committed suicide, but the cause of his death still remains controversial.

SL-01 FIGHTING GOLIATH: Texas Coal Wars SLEDGE, George;
HAMES, Mat
2007 The United States consumes one rail car of coal every 3 seconds. Human relationship with energy sources becomes more operatic everyday, and in this Sundance production, narrated by Robert Redford, the proposal of 80 new "clean" coal plants is fought tooth and nail by Texans. The goal of the film is to mobilize worldwide opposition to new coal plants.

"David had only a slingshot. Texans fighting big coal have Robert Redford."

CAG-01 c.1 VARIATIONS VII CAGE, John 1966,2008 The second in the 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering series that documents the 1966 collaboration of ten New York artists and scientists from Bell Telephone Laboratories, including Billy Klüver. This is the only complete documentation of Cage's Variations VII Performance and also includes a stereo audio recording of the full 85 minutes of the performance.

Variations VII was an experiment in making audible the inaudible and transforming the results via live electronic sound processing. By the inaudible was meant sounds from the world beyond the Armory space (for example, a restaurant kitchen, the zoo), sounds available in the space itself but generally inaccessible (sounds of the body), and sounds produced by the transformation of non-aural data (particularly via a Geiger counter).

The team of composers working with Cage and Klüver used the metaphor of fishing to create a rich and dense soundscape, originating entirely with real-time sources unintended for performance.

GOL-01 EVERYTHING'S COOL GOLD, Daniel B.;
HELFAND, Judith
2007 The ultimate challenge is to show how urgent this situation really is - and still leave people optimistic and willing to do something. That perhaps is the ultimate challenge to all global warming messengers. Hold on... this is bigger than changing your light bulbs.

A REAL-LIFE DISASTER MOVIE

EVERYTHING'S COOL is a film about America finally "getting" global warming in the wake of the most dangerous chasm ever to emerge between scientific understanding and political action. While industry funded nay-sayers sing what just might be their swan song of pseudo- scientific deception, a group of global warming messengers are on a high stakes quest to find the iconic image, the magic language, the points of leverage that will finally create the political will to move the United States from its reliance on fossil fuels to the new clean energy economy - AND FAST.

NEWS-01 THE COST OF LIVING NEWSON, Lloyd 2004 Award-winning short film from London's DV8 Physical Theater. The comic narrative takes us to a faded seaside town where disillusioned street performers David and Eddie struggle to find work and romance.
Eddie is tough, confrontational and not afraid to defend his belief in justice, respect and honesty. David is a dancer who has no legs (as he is in real life), watching him makes you reconsider accepted notions of grace and perfection.

GOS-02 STRANGER COMES TO TOWN GOSS, Jacqueline 2007 28 minutes
Six people are interviewed anonymously about their experiences coming into the US. Each then designs a video game avatar who tells their story by proxy. Goss focuses on the questions and examinations used to establish identity at the border, and how these processes in turn affect one's own sense of self and view of the world.

"Stranger Comes to Town" re-works animations from the Department of Homeland Security --combining them with stories from the border, impressions from the on-line game World of Warcraft, and journeys via Google Earth to tell a tale of bodies moving through lands familiar and strange.

Support from Creative Capital, DAAD Foundation, and Bard Faculty Research Fund.

"...a rich ambiguous contemplation of identity and the arbitrariness of geopolitical borders. . " Mark Holcomb Time Out magazine

Luria s research in Uzbekistan in the 1930s, How to Fix the World brings to life Luria's conversations with Central Asian farmers learning how to read and write under the unfamiliar principles of Socialism. Colorful digital animations play against a backdrop of images shot in Andijian, illustrating an attempt by one culture to transform another in the name of education and modernization.

SZU-01 UP THE RIDGE SZUBERLA, Nick;
KIRBY, Amelia
2008 Through the lens of Wallens Ridge State Prison, the documentary offers an in-depth look at the United States prison industry and the social impact of moving hundreds of thousands of inner-city minority offenders to distant rural outposts. The film explores competing political agendas that align government policy with human rights violations, and political expediencies that bring communities into racial and cultural conflict with tragic consequences. Connections exist, in both practice and ideology, between human rights violations in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo and physical and psychological abuse recorded in U.S. prisons.

DUR-01 IN THE CROSS HAIRS DURHAM, Jonathan 2006 Shot in the First Presbyterian Church (with reservations). Jonathan Durham is the camera operator in the video receiving instructions from their in-house director. When first shown the video was played on a TV, as the director thought it to be the same way DVDs are produced for church memebers who are not physically able to attend. However, since then Durham has thought the video better shown on a projector, since it's so much about large "belief laden" spaces.

KEN-01 THE ACROBAT KENNEDY, Chris 2007 Inspired in part by a poem by Toronto poet Ryan Kamastra, The Acrobat is a consideration of the relationship of gravity and politics- the beauty and necessity of rising up, but also, perhaps, the significance of allowing oneself to fall. If the force of gravity is in relation to both mass and proximity, how does the force of politics resonate across space and time?

EURO-01 KLEE The European Video Library: ART SERIES 1992 Paul Klee is considered a unique example of XX century art. With a great experimental sensibility, he went through the most different techniques, styles, and subjects. His body of work goes from geometrical compositions to surreal lanscapes, from being abstract to being figurative, with a never ending range of different possibilities. Perhaps for this attitude, Klee was always considered an isolated artist, but this isolation put his art in a kind of non-historical perspective and made him one of the most contemporary artists of the generation between the Wars.

A close friend of Kadinsky and a member of his "Blue Rider" group between 1911 and 1914, Klee found in the "strange pictures without objects" of his Russian colleague something close enough to his idea of changing life through art. Architect Walter Gropius, also found Paul Klee so close to his idea of interdisciplinary thought that he invited him to teach at the Bauhaus School in Weimer four years later. This assignment led Klee to open another chapter in his research about colors and patterns.

This video presents the most relevant aspects of Paul Klee's work by analyzing some of his masterpieces and it shows, throught the variety of styles and media Klee used, the kind of influence he has had on western arts both during his time and generations to come.

STO-04 VISIONARY ENVIRONMENTS AND AMATEUR ADVENTURES STONE, Melinda 2000 From Leonard Knight's painted mountain of hand crafted adobe to Grandma Prisbry's architectural marvel of "recycled" bottles, this rollicking travelogue celebrates the boundless creativity of those resourceful, perhaps obsessive characters, who have transformed their environments into utterly unique works of art.

In between revelatory visits to four of the Southwest's most ingenious roadside attractions, whimsical, thoughtful and downright invaluable travel tips are dispensed, with the hope that awestruck audiences will not resist the urge to realize their own inspired visions and future adventures.

RTM-01 UNTITLED #29.95: A VIDEO ABOUT VIDEO RTMark 2000 "Why should only wealthy people have access to the important ideas in art?"

Untitled #29.95 is a video about video. It is a story about the 60s when video was first used by artists and activists. It is a story about reproduction. It is a story about money and about public vs. private. And it is about who controls art. It is also a call to action.

Untitled #29.95 tells the history of the commercial art establishment's attempt to turn video into an object like sculpture or painting in order to increase its value in the marketplace.

Then in an act of cultural charity worthy of Robin-Hood, Untitled #29.95 calls for high-priced limited edition videos to be "liberated" from commercial art galleries and given to the internet (www.rtmark.com). Share the ware.

DEL-01 THE DRUM BUDDY SHOW DELAUP, Rick 2001 Mr. Quintron, the dance club organist and inventor from New Orleans, introduces you to his latest patented invention, The Drum Buddy!

This amazing new instrument is a five-oscillator, light-activated, mechanically-rotating drum machine that took five years to develop and design. The multitude of sounds it produces are a result of a direct link between the human hand and sheer electronic voltage!

Taped live in front of a studio audience at the Spellcaster Lodge in the 9th Ward, this classic TV infomercial takes you from the classroom of a local high school to the stage of a late-night rave.

The Drum Buddy Show includes performances by Quintron, Miss Pussycat and her puppets, MC Trachiotomy, and the Drum Buddy Dancers, and legendary R&B recording artist, Ernie K-Doe.

DEL-02 MISS PUSSYCAT'S NORTH POLE NUTRIAS DELAUP, Rick 2002 Welcome to the colorful and offbeat world of Miss Pussycat and her far-out puppets. Join Dusty and Treasure, two adventure-bound nutrias as they travel from the swampy lagoons of City Park to the snowy North Pole. Puppets and humans co-exist in this technicolor landscape where we meet our heroes; Dusty, the toothy TV addict, and Treasure, the furry fashion plate.

When a telemarketer offers them a vacation package to the North Pole, Dusty and Treasure head off to a fun-filled weekend, hoping for a chance encounter with Santa Claus. The North Pole, traditionally off-limits to tourists, is now built up like a Vegas-style village, providing free entertainment for our orange-toothed tourists. They even enjoy a complimentary suite in the famed Ice Cave Hotel. Is this free dream vacation package too good to be true? Dusty and Treasure discover the real reason they were called out to Santa s winter wonderland. A nasty, but musically inclined, Virus Monster has been destroying all the toys in Santa s workshop. Could Dusty and Treasure hold the antidote to destroy the virus and keep Santa s annual Christmas Eve trip out of peril?

Entitled NORTH POLE NUTRIAS, this soon-to-be holiday classic includes live performances by Glitter N Gold and 9th Ward organist Mr. Quintron with Miss Pussycat. Cameo appearance by Seafood King, Al Scramuzza as Santa. Featuring the voices of Bunny Matthews, Sheriff Harry Lee, Chris Rose, Panacea Theriac, and Rio Hackford.

NORTH POLE NUTRIAS was written by Panacea Theriac (Miss Pussycat). It was directed by Rick Delaup (director of "Ruthie the Duck Girl," "The Drum Buddy Show")

CLA-01 A NOUS LA LIBERTE CLAIR, Rene 1931 The film follows the paths of Louis and Émile. At the outset, they are convicts in prison, forced to work on an assembly line. They are separated when Louis manages to escape and eventually becomes the owner of a vast phonograph factory. Through a series of mishaps, Émile finds himself working at the factory (initially not realizing who owns it). The friends reunite; while Émile tries to pursue a love interest (never realized), Louis is threatened by former convicts from the prison, now gangsters. The film climaxes at the dedication of Louis's new phonograph factory, where everyone chases after money which one of the gangsters had stolen from Louis. The film ends with Louis and Émile as tramps, extolling the virtues of freedom.

AAC-03 C.2 ATOMIC AGE CLASSICS:
VOLUME 3 - A-BOMBS, FALLOUT & NUCLEAR WAR
ATOMIC AGE CLASSICS (AAC) 2005 By dropping the atomic bombs to hasten the end of the Second World War, the United States publicly demonstrated the awesome power of atomic energy and ushered in the fearsome Atomic Age. The films in this DVD collection were early attempts to address the public's anxieties concerning this mysterious and frightening new force. They explain the basic concepts of nuclear energy to a science-wary public, expose the hidden dangers of radiation and tout the great potentials of a newly-discovered power source. As the new century renews atomic anxieties, it is interesting and also somewhat disturbing to look back on how earlier generations expressed both the optimistic and pessimistic views of their impending nuclear future.

TRT: 111 mins

Titles Include:

Living with the Atom, 26 mins (1957)
Moody Institute of Science
The Moody Institute of Science was a film company whose aim was to attract scientific-minded youths to Christianity. This film covers the basics of atomic theory while addressing the moral issues inherent in wielding such godlike power.

Radioactive Fallout and Shelter, 28 mins (1965)
U.S. Office of Civil Defense
Purporting that fallout is nothing more than a minor nuisance, this dry, matter-of-fact film attempts to soothe the viewer into a comforting sense that "the govenment knows what to do and here's how to beat that nagging fallout problem." While they covered topics like appropriate shelter wall material or how to prepare a fallout-free meal, what such films never really addressed was what it would truly be like to live in a post-nuclear attack world.

The Atom Strikes!, 31 mins (1945)
U.S. Army Signal Corps
Released soon after the atomic attacks on Japan, this film serves as a public documentation of the historic event. It offers official explanations of the reasons that the United States resorted to atomic warfare, and provides a grim visual catalog of the A-bombs' horrific effects on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (if not the victims themselves).

Fallout: When and How to Protect Yourself, 15 mins (1959)
U.S. Office of Civil Defense
This stylized 1950s cartoon addresses one nasty side effect of an atomic blast: radioactive fallout. Civil defense filmse like this one tried to reassure the public that this new threat could be surmounted with proper shelter and supplies, but instead they probably did more to instill the fear of all things atomic.

The Atom Goes to Sea, 11 mins (1954)
John Sutherland Prod./ General Electric
General Electric was one of the first commercial entities to exploit the potentials og atomic energy. This company created serveral films to praise the benefits of atomic energy while trying to distance themselves from the well-publicized, devastating power of the A-bomb.

BAR-01 MAP BARTHOLL, Aram 2006 The project Map questions the red markers of the location based search engine Google Maps.

TRT: 2 mins

The web interface of Google Maps uses small graphical icons to show location related search results on a map in an alphabetical order. On each new search ten red markers (A - J) known from the analogue world find their new position automatically within milliseconds. Interestingly each marker and even the speech bubbles with further information do cast a shadow on the map and satellite image. While zooming in the map the pixel size of the markers on the screen always stay at the same size. But if their size is seen in relation to their environment they shrink while the user does zoom in the map.
This effect corresponds exactly to the phenomenon of Mr. Turtur, the illusionary giant of the children fantasy novel Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver written by Michael Ende.

The size of the rebuilt red Marker in reality corresponds to the size of a marker in the web interface in max zoom factor of the map.

JULY-01 c.2 ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW JULY, Miranda 2005 Award-winning and critically-acclaimed, ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW is a poetic and penetrating look at how everyday people struggle to connect with one another in an isolating modern world.

Christine Jesperson (writer/director Miranda July) is a struggling artist and cab driver who uses her talents and imagination to draw her dreams and objects of desire nearer. One such object is Richard Swersey (John Hawkes, TVs "Deadwood"), a newly-single father of two boys who is hoping for amazing things, yet panics upon meeting the captivating Christine. But in a world where the mundane is transcendent and people seek meaningful connections despite the risk, anything magical can - and will - happen.

FOU-01 THE BOOTY DON'T STOP FOUND MAGAZINE
An instant classic! A few years back Nigel Morgan found a mysterious, unmarked cassette-tape on the streets of Ypsilanti, Michigan. What he heard was a demo tape with a deep voice rapping over Casio drum beats ? and every song was a booty-rap anthem! With a musical aesthetic somewhere between Jay-Z and Wesley Willis, this rapper unwittingly created an album of booty-bliss. After the tape circulated around Southeast Michigan for a couple of years, Morgan brought the tape to Found Magazine, who just had to share it with everyone.

The Power of Nightmares
CURTIS, Adam 2004 Bonus Disc: The Power of Nightmares
Part III: The Shadows in the Cave
Directed by Adam Curtus

The Power of Nightmares assesses whether the threat from a hidden and organised terrorist network is an illusion. In the concluding part of the series, the programme explains how the illusion was created and who benefits from it.

In the wake of the shock and panic created by the devastating attack on the World Trade Center on 11 September, 2001, the neo-conservatives reconstructed the radical Islamists in the image of their last evil enemy, the Soviet Union - a sinister web of terror run from the centre by Osama Bin Laden in his lair in Afghanistan.

There are dangerous and fanatical individuals and groups around the world who have been inspired by extreme Islamist ideas, and who will use the techniques of mass terror - the attacks on America and Madrid make this only too clear.

But the nightmare vision of a uniquely powerful hidden organisation waiting to strike our societies is an illusion.

Wherever one looks for this al-Qaeda organisation, from the mountains of Afghanistan to the "sleeper cells" in America, the British and Americans are chasing a phantom enemy.

But the reason that no-one questions the illusion is because this nightmare enemy gives so many groups new power and influence in a cynical age - and not just politicians.

Those with the darkest imaginations have now become the most powerful.

POT-04 FORTUNE TRAILER POTTER-BELMAR LABS 2008 FORTUNE

What does the future hold? What follows us from the past? What more can we learn about the present? Multimedia artists and performers, Potter-Belmar Labs, will answer these questions and more in their audience-participatory live cinema performance, "Fortune."

PBL probes the collective subconscious of the audience, and presents the results in a live mix of sound and moving image. Each performance of "Fortune" is unique; the audience determines the selections and arrangement from a set of reconfigurable vignettes. Original sound and image compositions are interwoven with samples from the culture at-large and field recordings, generating a tapestry of allusion, abstract narration, and dreamlike hallucination.

Fans of live cinema, experimental film, participation theater, and new media art will enjoy "Fortune" by Potter-Belmar Labs!
Suitable for children with at least one cool parent.
KOC-01 PASSIONS JUST LIKE MINE KOCH, Kerri 2008 Passions Just Like Mine is a documentary film telling the story of Latino music fans in the greater Los Angeles area whose lives have been utterly transformed by the words, music, and lifestyle of British pop star Morrissey. The film offers a stirring glimpse into how one's course in life can be changed by a total stranger with seemingly no cultural similarities. The fans' stories are revealed by the devoted themselves, providing powerful portraits of their obsession and transformative journeys. The camera follows these fans to Smiths tribute shows, Morrissey fan conventions and into Latino neighborhoods and family homes where the influence of the British pop icon resounds. One-on-one interviews with the fans are interspersed with personal archival materials including fanzines, flyers, and photographs, as well as live-footage from tribute bands such as Sweet and Tender Hooligans and These Handsome Devils. Passions Just Like Mine creates a window into a world where an eighteen-year-old Mexican immigrant can become obsessed with a forty-eight-year-old British man he's never known, and even more profoundly, that this same young person is anything but alone.

TRT: 78 mins

Featuring performances by and interviews with The Sweet and Tender Hooligans and These Handsome Devils, Smiths/Morrissey tribute bands.

Interviews with 20+ Latino Morrissey fanatics including the Moz Krew, a group of young friends dedicated partying Moz style and Estefenia Chavez, a life long fan who traveled to England just to see Morrissey perform.

Filmed entirely in the Greater Los Angeles Area.

Directed by Kerri Koch, creator of Don't Need You, a documentary on Riot Grrrl culture and music.

NEE-01 VISIONS OF WASTED TIME NEEDLEMAN, Neil Ira 2007 My wife says this is a bitter work. She's right, of course. That's because this video is about the part of my relationship with my late father that, frankly, brings back bitter memories.

My father was a very practical man. Art and culture had no real place in his life. He was, essencially, all about making a living and enjoying as "nice" a life as possible. When he died in 1985, he was living a very nice life in a Florida retirement community.

At the same time that he collapsed after a vigorous game of tennis, I was shooting Super 8 film of the street life in New York City. And this- our very different visions of recreational activity- highlighted the gulf between us.

From the moment I expressed an interest in exploring / documenting / artistically approaching the world around me with a movie camera, my father was vocally and vociferously against it. He couldn't understand why I wanted to waste my time with a camera when I could be studying something pracitcal, like accounting or medicine or engineering.

But I am what I am- and that's a type of person who is very different from my late father. I had nothing against his "nice" life. I'm very happy that he had a few fun years of Florida retirement living before he passed away. I just wish he could have attempted to see the visual world through my eyes. Or my camera.

But this was impossible for my father, just as it was impossible for him to sit through and three-minute, silent, single-take Super8 movies. He never could have predicted that he would become the subject of one of them. As you will see when you watch this short video/Super8.

Yeah, I guess there's still some residual bitterness in me.

NEE-02 I KNOW WHO REALLY SENT THE ANTHRAX LETTERS NEEDLEMAN, Neil Ira 2008 The mysterious case of the deadly anthrax letters was out of the headlines for many years. And, as with so many other issues, if it's not mentioned in the news, it doesn't register in the public's collective memory. When it comes to important matters and events, we suffer from a type of amnesia that comes from narrow mindedness and a short national attention span.

From 2001 until 2008 I was thinking about the anthrax letters. The longer the case remained off the news media's radar screen, the more I began to ponder this incident. Someone must have mailed the letters, but the FBI investigation didn't appear to get anywhere.

Since I couldn't read about the case in the newspapers, I decided to write my own story about the anthrax letters. As the form of the story/video began to become finalized in my mind, WHAM! The govenment suddenly announced that they were going to arrest a suspect- a government physicist who was their prime suspect.(Actually, he was "government physicist suspect #2." The first one was finally dropped from the suspect list, but not until his life and career had been irreparably damaged by the investigation.)

As you may recall, the prime suspect committed suicide. Some see this as the ultimate confession of guilt. Others are not convinced. It's one more entry to file away in the "Things We May Never Know" folder.

But I still had my story and, with a little tweaking to take into account recent investigative disclosures, I could still "bring it to the screen" (as Hollywood types would say).

One more note: This story is also inspired by events in the Unabomber case. I won't however, point them out here because, if I did, I'd have to say "SPOILER ALERT." So let's leave it at that.

BIT-01 LUMIA: THOMAS WILFRED AND THE STORY OF LIGHT ART 13BIT PRODUCTIONS 2007 Thomas Wilfred almost made it. He was not the first, or the last, to try to bottle light in an instrument and to play it like music. For two decades he hauled his steamer trunks of equipment around the country and transfixed people with his strange and beautiful projections. It was the golden age of invention. Electricity was the new religion. This energy infected the arts. Inspired by occult philosophies from Blavatsky and Ouspensky, and scientific theories of Einstein and Heisenberg, Wilfred tried to express the world beyond the material. He inspired many. The few who remain tell the tale of struggle and invention, obsession and anonymity. They all have fascinating stories to tell - of odd experiments, strange devices, and sorties into other dimensions.

NES-01 CINEMA ON FIRE NESHAT, Shirin
Synopsis:

1st film: Cinema on Fie
A documentary film about the Iranian cinema by non-Persian speaking film critiques. This documentary film explains the reasons for the success of Iranian films outside of Iran.

2nd film: Shirn Neshat
There is a palpable energy in Shirin Neshat's films, an almost tangible seduction obviating the violence it borders, deeply rooted in the historical culture she would ultimately have to call "home."
As an artist living in New York and from there addressing a global audience, Shirin Neshat quietly corrodes the most violent metaphysical imperative assumptions about the nature and function of an "Islamic" femininity.
Enduring assumptions of what constitutes an "Islamic woman" are at once domestic to that culture and colonially crafted on it. With a singular strike of creative genius, Shirin Neshat manages to target both of these divergent yet colliding agents.
The history of Shirin Neshat's bodily portrayals of this "Islamic woman" is the unwritten chronicle of a mute and concealed femininity. Her photographs and films show and tell what has been forbidden to show and tell.
That she manages to do this without violating the bodily codes of an "Islamic woman" marks the site of her creative imagination.

VIO-01 I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IT IS I AM LIKE VIOLA, Bill 1986 An epic journey in five chapters, I Do Not Know What it is I am Like is a personal investigation into the inner states and connections to animal consciousness we all possess. In a stream of images of striking clarity, depth and beauty, woven within a subtle fabric of natural sound, Bill Viola evokes a timeless view of the natural world and our place in it. This is a major contribution to contemporary video art that masterfully speaks to us in the inner language of subjective thoughts and collective memories.

Bill Viola and Kira Perov gathered images for this video work over a period of two years. In the course of their travels they spent several weeks with a freely roaming herd of buffalo in Wind Cave National Park, South Dakota, recorded a time-lapse sequence beside a galcial lake in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and attended a week-long firewalking ritual at a Hindu Temple on the island of Fiji. During this time, Viola was also artist-in-residence at the San Diego Zoo.

ANG-01 THE FILMS OF KENNETH ANGER: VOLUME TWO ANGER, Kenneth 1964-2007 Cinematic magician, legendary provocateur, author of the infamous HOLLYWOOD BABYLON books and creator of some of the most striking and beautiful works in the history of film, Kenneth Anger is a singular figure in post-war American culture.

A major influence on everything from the films of Martin Scorsese, Rainer Werner Fassbinder and David Lynch to the pop art of Andy Warhol to MTV, Anger's work serves as a talisman of universal symbols and personal obsessions, combining myth, artifice and ritual to render cinema with the power of a spell or incantation.

Covering the second half of Anger's career, from his legendary SCORPIO RISING to his breathtaking phantasmagoria LUCIFER RISING, Fantoma is very proud to complete the cycle with his long-awaited final volume of films by this revolutionary and gound-breaking maverick, painstakingly restored and presented on DVD for the first time anywhere in the world.

LEE-01 THE ART AND FILMS OF LYNN HERSHMAN LEESON: SECRET AGENTS, PRIVATE I LEESON, Lynn Hershman 2005 Lynn Hershman Leeson's groundbreaking installation, performance, photography, video, digital, and film works have earned her an international reputation as a prodigious and innovative artist. This collection of her work brings nearly forty years of creative output into focus by tracking the development of her constant themes through each medium. Hershman Leeson's work explores vision, spectatorship, and the construction of subjectivity, touching on the lived experience of the physical body and the body as a medium on which social law and values are inscribed. Her projects of self-analysis and self mythification explode stable notions of identity. The Art and Films of Lynn Hershman Leeson demonstrates how Hershman Leeson's work uniquely mirrors fragmented human subjectivity at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

BUN-01 UN CHIEN ANDALOU BUNUEL, Luis
DALI, Salvador
1929 Made in 1929, Un Chien Andalou (The Andalusian Dog) is regarded as the first film produced purely from within the Surrealist Movement, and a landmark in the history of cinema.

Based on an exchange of dreams between Salvador Dali and acclaimed director Luis Bunuel, this tale of unfulfilled desire opens innocently with the words "Once Upon a Time." What follows is one of the most shocking and celebrated sequences in film history- a razor slashing a woman's eye in extreme close up...

Intended to provoke rather than please (Bunuel saw it as 'nothing more than a desperate, a passionate appeal to murder'), Un Chien Andalou is a triumph of art and a hysterically dark joy ride whose power to affront the viewer is undiminished after more than three quarters of a century.

In this documentary, which follows him through Johannesburg and Brazil, he speaks of the impact of the landscape and the social contradictions on his work, and comments on the life of characters like Felix Teitlebaum, his alter ego. Shot in digital video and in highly grainy super-8 stock, in a reference to the author's charcoal drawings, the film shows the setting up of a previously unseen installation featuring virtual fish and a real car, commissioned in 2000 by Associacao Cultural Videobrasil for the Contemporary African Art Show in Sao Paulo.

Medias Mentiras (Half Lies)
A video poem about the nature of social relations and mass media, Half Lies exposes the seemingly innocuous ways we distort truth. Harmonious families, trade treaties, and current events are among the mediated realities that Cuevas interrogates. Half Lies makes the viewer question the half truths we encounter daily. The video walks the haunting gray area between documentary and drama, creating a world that is both shockingly grotesque and startingly authentic. Using mass-mediated images, animation, image manipulation, and fantasy, Medias Mentiras interprets the chaotic landscape of politics, urban chaos and everyday existence.

ANG-02 THE FILMS OF KENNETH ANGER: VOLUME ONE ANGER, Kenneth 1947-1954 Cinematic magician, legendary provocateur, author of the infamous HOLLYWOOD BABYLON books and creator of some of the most striking and beautiful works in the history of film, Kenneth Anger is a singular figure in post-war American culture.
A major influence on everything from the films of Martin Scorsese, Rainer Werner Fassbinder and David Lynch to the pop art of Andy Warhol to MTV, Anger's work serves as a talisman of universal symbols and personal obsessions, combining myth, artifice and ritual to render cinema with the power of spell or incantation.
Covering the first half of Anger's career, from his landmark debut FIREWORKS in 1947 to his epic bacchanalia INAUGURATION OF THE PLEASURE DOME, Fantoma is very proud to present the long-awaited first volume of films by this revolutionary and groundbreaking maverick, painstakingly restored and presented on DVD for the first time.

Contains the films:
Fireworks (1947)
Puce Moment (1949)
Rabbit's Moon (1950, the rarely seen original 16 minute version)
Eaux d'Artifice (1953)
Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome (1954)

HUM-01 SHADOW OF THE HOUSE, PHOTOGRAPHER ABELLARDO MORELL HUMENUK, Allie 2007 Things are not always what they appear to be, says Cuban American photographer Abelardo Morell. Shadow of the House peers into his past and around the corners of his present to see what normally goes unseen. This film is a rare look into the life of one of America s renowned photographers. A feature length film, Shadow of the House explores how Morell uses his art to make sense of a life up-ended by geographic, cultural, linguistic, and political dislocation. It is an intimate portrayal of how one man s personal struggle with the themes of loss, exile, and self-determination reflects the ways in which we all work to construct narratives that unite the past with the present and memory with desire. Morell has used this tension to fuel a career as a remarkable artist.

This unique twist on the classic zombie theme, centers around the highly-intuitive Dannie Jacobs and a group of four other middle school students who try to save their friends, their town and themselves in spite of the odds against them. While they are desperately trying to find an answer before it's too late, they meet researcher Sue who may hold the key to the infection and Dannie's dreams.

During a one week run of the EPI in Chicago, in June, 1966, the filmmaker Ronald Nameth filmed every performance. The resulting film is composed of his multiple recordings. This multi-layered film is best though of as a separate work of art, inspired by this multimedia event, rather than a documentary.

GIN-01 PANSY DIVISION: LIFE IN A GAY ROCK BAND GINOLI, Jon 2008 Undeniably one of the most important and influential gay music acts in the last twenty years, Pansy Division pioneered the "queercore" genre long before other gay musicians had the confidence to come out of the closet, and without major record label support or mainstream radio airplay. Using original and archive footage and covering over fifteen years as a group, Pansy Division: Life in a Gay Rock Band is a fast-paced, intimate and humorous account of one of rock's most fearless acts. From their first days in San Francisco's underground music scene to a full-fledged stadium tour with Green Day and beyond, founding members Jon Ginoli and Chris Freeman overcome increasingly difficult line-up changes, prejudice and near-poverty to keep the band together and create music that has truly made a difference. The film also examines issues that faced the gay community in the 90's, as well as the adversity one encounters simply by being oneself.
BRIM-01 HANDS/MOUTH BRIMS, Michael 2009 The two pieces are part of a series called "Listen and Laugh!." It consists of a series of videos featuring various body parts.

FIT-01 FREESTYLE: THE ART OF RHYME FITZGERALD, Kevin 2004 Like a needle to the record and a pen to papyrus, Kevin Fitzgerald's camera in his Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme penetrated and saw into hip-hop worlds that were visible but unseen. While the film itself powerfully explores the art of improvisation in hip-hop, Freestyle is also an incredible aesthetic work. And it is no wonder that the opening credits identify it as a film by DJ Organic (aka Kevin Fitzgerald), because Freestyle is in essence a cinematic mix-tape.

Using images as dubplates and obscure archival footage as samples, Organic blended, cut, and remixed the different film stocks, color and black and white images, incredible interviews, rare battle footage and the immediacy of hand held shots of freestyle ciphers. His guerilla filmmaking style and use of different aesthetics may seem disorienting to some - but that's the point. Hip-hop was meant to shake shit up and to overturn the status-quo. Who else in the United states could turn an abandoned building or a subway train into a canvas, a piece of cardboard into a dancefloor, turntables into instruments, and old records into new sounds? Who else besides black and brown people in post-COINTELPRO America had the courage, the creativity, and the necessity to reclaim and remix not only their environments, but also their very existence?

SPA-01 TRANSISTOR SPACETAKER 2006 Spacetaker, in partnership with Houston Downtown Alliance, Houston Dance Source, and Aileen Mapes Modern Dance Company presents an original dance piece to scour the landscapes of downtown houston facing Market Square. This project was funded in part by funds from the city of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.

"Transistor" was performed on Saturday, November 18, 2006 at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. in Market Square. No tickets were necessary, but a chair or blanket were recommended.

Unconventially, "Transistor" is not performed in a theater; it is performed on the streets and buildings, the action sweeps above and around the audience allowing not a millimeter of movement to be missed. The Houston Downtown Historic district provides a blank canvas for the dancers, with thousands of square feet of untouched cityscape to traverse.

David Brown, director of Spacetaker, says, "The opportunity to present an original performance in this particular manner is absolutely unique. Under no other set of circumstances will the City of Houston have such an ideal opportunity to showcase Houston's modern dance talent while at the same time presenting the community with a larger-than-life piece of original art to be enjoyed by all, for free."

The show experiments with distorting shapes, colors, and texture, as well as examines our identities and transitions through life. Performed by Aileen Mapes (independent choreographer and Suchu dancer), John Dunn, Jess Ray, Herzogenrath and Catalina Gutierrez. "Transistor" is performed to the live accompaniment of two pianos, horns, and African influenced percussion.

EXE-01 STARSHIP EXETER: THE MAKING OF A FAN FILM EXETER STUDIO 2003 For Jimm and Josh Johnson, the STARSHIP EXETER project began on Christmas Eve 1995 with a question: Could they, in their spare time, and with their extra money, write and film a pilot episode for a new series that would come close to the look and spirit of the original 1960's Star Trek television show? They conducted much research, wrote a number of possible story lines and chose "The Savage Empire" for budgetary reasons. The action sequences were all storyboarded, and they created all the costumes and most of the props from scratch. A warehouse studio space in Minneapolic, Minnestoa was rented for two years where Jimm and Josh built sets and shot much of the production. They carefully picked friends and acquaintances to work on a voluntary basis both as actors and crew. Once the live action was completed came the long and tedius task of editing and creating visual effects true to the look of the "Original Series." It took seven years, but on December 19, 2002, STARSHIP EXETER made its internet debut.

Produced by Joel Sarchet and EXETER STUDIO, "STARSHIP EXETER: The Making of a Fan Film" is a series of eight featurettes documenting the creation and internet release of STARSHIP EXETER "The Savage Empire." "The Making of a Fan Film" is loaded with extensive behind-the-scenes footage, in-depth interviews with the cast, crew, and creators of STARSHIP EXETER, and information on how the props, costumes, sets, and special effects were created.

This DVD-R contains eight documentary featurettes:

Way Home, 9:00, by Erick Oh. A story featuring a fly, a dung beetle, and a farmer. Through a tragic episode that is also filled with humor and brightness, I would like to give the viewers an opportunity to think about what they are chasing after and what is truly precious in life. When considering the theme of the film, some would perceive a fate that no one can alter, or a natural cycle of life. Others would simply experience the nothingness at life's end. Regardless of which notion would weigh heavier on their minds, it would all narrow down to a question about 'life' after all.

MET-01 PLAGUES & PLEASURES ON THE SALTON SEA METZLER, Chris
SPRINGER, Jeff
2004 Fabulously offbeat and refreshingly upbeat, this lovable film gets friendly with the natives of the Salton Sea, an inland ocean of massive fish kills, rotting resorts, and 120 degree nights located just minutes from urban Southern California. This award-winning film from directors Chris Metzler and Jeff Springer details the rise and fall of the Salton Sea, from its heyday as the "California Riviera" where boaters and Beach Boys mingled in paradise to its present state as a decaying, forgotten ecological disaster. From wonderland to wasteland, PLAGUES & PLEASURES ON THE SALTON SEA captures a place far more interesting than the shopping malls and parking lots of suburban America, a wacky world where a beer-swilling Hungarian Revolutionary, a geriatric nudist, and a religious zealot building a monument to God all find solace and community.

Crisply and hilariously narrated by oddball auteur John Waters, and featuring music by desert lounge rockers Friends of Dean Martinez, PLAGUES & PLEASURES ON THE SALTON SEA melds high camp with stark realism, offering both a sobering message about the consequences of tampering with nature and a heart-warming tale of individualism.

BOW-01 TWO MOON JULY, THE KITCHEN BOWES, Tom 1987 Two Moon July
The Kitchen
1986, 53:40 min, color, sound
The television production Two Moon July was a multidisciplinary event that featured experimental video, film, visual art, performance and music in a theatrical framework. More than thirty artists participated in the program, which was produced for the Kitchen by Carlota Schoolman and directed by Tom Bowes. This production reflects a moment when art centers were experimenting with new modes of presenting the arts for television. The participating artists read like a "who's who" of 1980's downtown art icons. Short excerpts from video and film works (by artists including Vito Acconci, Dara Birnbaum, Bruce Connor and Bill Viola) are intercut with performances and art installations in the Kitchen's gallery spaces. Laurie Anderson performs Difficult Listening Hour, speaking through the male voice of her "Soul Doctor" character; Talking Heads' front man David Byrne is featured in the performance piece Report from L.A.; choreographer and dancer Bill T. Jones performs Inspiration to the accompaniment of John and Evan Lurie's music. Art works by '80s art stars Cindy Sherman, Robert Longo and Jonathan Borofsky are integral to the mise en scene, while music by downtown legends Brian Eno, Philip Glass and Arto Lindsay, among others, provides a running soundtrack.
HAS-01 GUESTS OF CINDY SHERMAN HASEGAWA, Paul
DONAHUE, Tom
2008 Guest of Cindy Sherman takes an eye-opening look at what happens when a skeptical outsider finds himself romantically involved with the ultimate insider.

Paul H-O became a fixture of the New York art scene in the 1990s with his public access show GalleryBeat. Armed with a video camera, he attended art gallery openings, amusing some with his candid, witty assessments of their work, but also winning many fans. Among the latter was Cindy Sherman, the press-shy artist who is internationally acknowledged as one of the world s most gifted and significant visual talents. Cindy invites Paul to her studio for a series of exclusive interviews and through these videotaped encounters, he gains unprecedented insight into her artistic process and a romantic relationship blossoms. Their initial bliss ends when Paul finds himself wracked with anxiety about his own personality becoming subsumed by his role as Cindy's guest at the celebrity-studded openings and dinners she regularly attends.

Filmed over 15 years and including interviews with a veritable who's who of the art and entertainment world (including Ingrid Sischy, John Waters, Robert Longo, Carol Kane, David Furnish, Danny DeVito, and Molly Ringwald), the film paints a vivid picture of the New York art scene that is also a witty, illuminating look at celebrity, male anxiety, and art.

STEV-01 BQE STEVENS, Sufjan 2009 Release date: October 20, 2009
(via Rough Trade in the UK, P-Vine in Japan, Spunk in Australia)

Sufjan Stevens is proud to present The BQE, a cinematic suite inspired by the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and the Hula-Hoop. Commissioned by Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), The BQE was originally performed in the Howard Gilman Opera House in celebration of the 25th anniversary Next Wave Festival in October of 2007.

The Brooklyn-Queens Expressway is an incidental 12.7 miles of urban roadway built over the course of several decades (1939-1964), spear-headed by the master architect Robert Moses to accommodate for the increase of commercial and commuter traffic in New York City's outer boroughs. The roadway was a painstaking piecemeal project, poorly planned, badly built, and relentlessly encumbered by the obvious obstacles of the era: red tape, neighborhood protests, World War II, and a congested borough whose sequestering layout proved ill-fitting for the automobile. The resulting expressway-a pockmarked, serpentine, congested BQE-has become one of Brooklyn's most notable icons of urban blight. And, for Sufjan Stevens, an object of unmitigated inspiration.

CI-03 DOXITA: LIFE IS A PROGRESS AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2010 Life is a progress, and not a station, said Ralph Waldo Emerson. Life ebbs and flows with change. There are hurdles that must be scaled and personal character is built through adversity. People adapt their behavior to get through everything from war to displacement to growing up. These four films capture stories of people s survival and their ways to cope with self-preservation.

These are the films in the 3rd annual doxita:

Steel Homes (UK, Eva Weber, 10 min.) - Storage lockers provide a holding ground for memories of long-gone loved ones and dreams that still live. Striking cinematography and sound evoke the minds and personal spaces of average people.

Slaves (Sweden, Hannah Heilborn and David Aronowitsch, 15 min.) Colorful animation brings alive the tale of two Sudanese youth who were captured for slavery. The animation and documentary interview technique mask the children s identity while also creating an engrossing story of survival.

The First Kid to Learn English From Mexico (USA, Peter Jordan, 20 min.) - 9-year-old Pedro Lopez wishes he never left Mexico. Lush camera and music create this almost-surreal, yet honest and charming portrait of this struggling boy.

12 Notes Down (Denmark, Andreas Koefed, 30 min.) Jorgis is the star of his boys choir, until the onset of puberty affects what he loves most: his ability to sing. This beautifully tender portrait follows the journey of a young man facing the need to leave his old identity behind.

NEW DOCUMENTARY
"Beauty, Brawn and bulletproof bracelets: a Wonder Woman Retrospective"
APS-44 NOT SO FINAL FRONTIER AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2010 Duration 00:31:45

Escape the summer heat at warp speed with an intergalactic night of sci-fi and Star Trek fan films. We will take you aboard the Aurora Starship with CGI animation, appropriated hyperspace scenes, talking action figures, a boy waiting to be taken by aliens and a Star Trek fan film produced in 1969. The program concludes with a modern day original fan-produced pilot from Starship Exeter titled Savage Empire.

Would you give your spare time and money to write and film a pilot episode for a new series that would come close to the look and spirit of the original 1960's Star Trek television show? The team behind Starship Exeter did. They conducted research, wrote a number of possible story lines and chose "The Savage Empire" as their debut. The action sequences were all storyboarded, and they created all the costumes and most of the props from scratch. A warehouse studio space in Minneapolis, Minnesota was rented for two years where Jimm and Josh Johnson built sets and shot much of the production. They carefully picked friends and acquaintances to work on a voluntary basis both as actors and crew. Once the live action was completed came the long and tedious task of editing and creating visual effects true to the look of the "Original Series." It took seven years, but on December 19, 2002, STARSHIP EXETER made its internet debut.


The U.S.S. Exeter, freshly recrewed and commanded by Captain John Garrovick, is on a mission to save a ship infected with the deadly Canopus Plague. The Exeter must travel to the homeworld of Andorian Lieutenant B'fuselek to find the cure. But Andorian rebels have other plans . . . and so do the Klingons!

WER-01 MAU WAL, ENCONTROS TRADUZIDOS WERNECK, Fabiana and DEL FIOL, Marco 2002 Mauricio Dias and Walter Riedweg often say that their studio is the street. It is from the observation of street life and the people in it that their installations about encounters, identity and territoriality emerge. Brazilian artist Dias met Swiss Riedweg in 1993. They found out that, together, they were able to potentialise their ideas. "This marriage became Mau Wal", recalls Dias. In this documentary, they present their oeuvre and the different characters behind the work: people who make up everyday life in big cities. Street sellers of a north-eastern immigrant community market in São Paulo, illegal immigrants in search of an European dream, street teenagers and their memories. By means of stories or of the role it plays, the human element always takes centre stage in the work of the Mau Wal duo.

DJ Spooky vs. WebSpinstress M, Michelle Handelman, 2:35
This is an addition to Handelman's constructed persona series, "The Adventures of Lucky M." Here her character stars as "WebSpinstress M" a mischievous punk who takes on the culture spin king of the art world: DJ Spooky. From the dregs of outdated technology to the pinnacle of the superbrand, this is a re-spinning of the old spider and the fly tale. A wry look at seduction and art politics in an age of corporate branding; where art and self-promotion feed the timeless race toward fandom.

Superhero, Hanneke Schutte, 15:00
An amnesiac finds himself stranded in the middle of an arid landscape dressed as a superhero. He s assisted and spurred on by a young boy who wholeheartedly believes that he is real. But as the man s memory returns he discovers that he s been anything but a hero.

APS-47 EXTREMELY SHORTS XIII (13) AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2010 Anatinus, David Wanger

Anatinus is a musical cinematographical voyage into the hazy early hours of the day. This film was shot in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with no budget, using a pocket-sized digital camera. No giant rubber ducks were harmed in the making of this picture. Music by LIGO.


Bobby Visits the Library, Eric Krasner

A comedy mash-up where Eric draws upon his vast collection of vintage 16mm films to produce all sorts of visual goodies which he likes to call, "Manipulated Movies. This film is dedicated to librarians world-wide. You are the kindest, most generous and helpful people in the universe.


SNAIL, Sharad Patel

From a starting point of what seems to be a projected narrative, the viewer s perception of context spirals slowly outward into shifting contexts.


Las Ultimas en Sexo Grande, Stephanie Saint Sanchez

Can Mortal Sin be Too Far Away? Somewhere in TVLANDIA, an all Female Super Squad Las Ultimas (Frida Kahlo, La Virgen de Vigilante and Sister Rolla) rush to save a young teen on the verge of succumbing to La Pecado Picoso (the hot sin) set off from an Erik Estrada Pin-up.


The Unforgettable Dawn Hampton, Julie Cohen and Alex Lowther

Ms Hampton started out as a three year old saxophone player in a family band and went on to become a cabaret diva in Greenwich Village gay nightclubs. Today, at 82, she teaches swing dance to students and fans all over the world. This film is a slice or her remarkable story.

Hand gLove, Karen Ostrom

Hand gLove is a playful musing on gesture, harkening back to the amputations and the anthropomorphizing of body parts by the Surrealists. The animated narrative plays out a tryst between two hands that is divisively ambiguous in both conclusion and assigning gender, inviting the viewer to privately project their own conclusions.


Approaching Stars, Atton Paul

A little boy looks up at the stars and contemplates the vastness of space while imagining himself to be an astronaut. His mode of transportation on the ground is his trusty tricycle...yet in space...he could be in a rocket! Filmed with a PXL-2000 toy video camera (circa early 80 s) using multiple layers of glass for reflection and depth of field. The music was made with toy keyboards found in thrift-stores and recorded onto 4-track cassette.


Follow Me, Kahori Kamiya

I started with Netflixing several hundred movies to collect scenes within which an actor/actress/animation character says follow me based on specific situations. I then Twittered the actions or ideas highlighted or implied by these situations. Through this work, I attempt to interrogate human authority, power relationship in gender, and the need for popularity all connected with the keyword, follow me.


Bookstopped, David Purdie

A film within a film that revisits the Bookstop, Houston s former Alabama Theater, to watch an extremely short film on the screen that was once there.


Accelerando Nonsense: Pie in the Sky, Brenda Cruz

Accelerando Nonsense: Pie in the Sky covers a musical dream of tempo. To dream is a time based movement and for the main character it s much more, reality moves at a fast tempo but dreams move just as fast. Music and tempo come together to bring life to dreams and reality.


Spaceboy, Matt Choi

Simply animated hand drawn art accompanies a whimsical, haunting song resulting in the mood of a children's book. A boy and his teddy bear go on an adventure.


Short Stitched, Jenalia Moreno

After unexpectedly losing his job, quilter Randall Cook made a piece of art depicting a male nude and his piece caused quite a stir amongst traditional quilters. We hope to create a longer documentary about controversial art quilters and call it Stitched.


Bulldozer, Melissa Hung

In this music video for The Invisible Cities, a toy bulldozer with an affinity for whiskey and records heads out for a day at the beach with friends only to find it closed. Oh no! What to do?!


Moving Pictures, Mike Kirby

Moving Pictures is an experimental stop-action video showing middle school students entering and moving through the schoolhouse. As the title suggests, this video shows a sequence of about 1,250 posed photographs that create the illusion of movement.


My First Cricket Match, Amanda Nguyen

This video was filmed & photographed in Melbourne, Australia after my 5th night at my new house with my new housemates. My First Cricket Match was produced 2 weeks later. All Cricket field shots and videos were taken in 15 minutes (3:19-3:33pm on 22 February 2010) after we furnished our back garden w/ a free table from our evicted neighbor's trash pile. All photos, videos, & production are by my own eyes, fingers & Mac.


La Piñata, Mauel Arija

Can a street mime cheer you up?


The Long Sleep AKA Kundalin, Jen Inman

The Long Sleep AKA Kundalini is about the feeling of being awake when you are actually sleeping, both physically and metaphysically. The video was made through a combination of computer animation and traditional frame-by-frame animation techniques. Special thanks to the Carnegie Mellon University School of Art and the Fine Foundation for their support.


Dial Up, Morrisa Maltz

Dial Up is a video art piece, in which I also built the sets, costumes, played the roles as well as edited and shot the video. The video uses the vintage sound of "dial up," Internet accompanied with a variety of images.


Being a Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobic, Felipe Ruiz Reyes

A short animated mockumentary exploring what it is like to be a Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobic, which is defined as a person with a fear of long words.


Follow Me, Melanie Beisswenger

Images and sounds flow together, like fleeting thoughts shooting through the mind. This experimental video combines images, movement and sound to a pulsating unit, taking us on a journey into the unknown.


Oblivion, Simon Peña

Awareness journeys into the realms of oblivion.


Wasteland, Kathleen Quillian

Through stop-motion animation, Wasteland follows the path of the industrial food system from field to table and back and shows how the industry operates at the expense of the health of the society it was designed to nourish.


Lovely, Dark, and Deep, Carolyn Monastra

Beneath any lovely, ethereal surface something dark and mysterious may be hidden. Filmed in Iceland, this scenario describes not just a literal landscape - but that of the psyche as well.

POP-07 AURORA BOOT CAMP POPCORN KIDS 2010 Second Annual Boot Camp World Premiere. Young filmmakers visions come to life on screen at our closing screening of films made by kids enrolled in Aurora s summer filmmaking boot camps.

TEEN CAMP

KIDS CAMP I

KIDS CAMP II
APS-51 TIMES II AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2010 Second screening of work by University of Houston School of Art students and alumni in a screening titled Times II. Curated by School of Art faculty member, Stephan Hillerbrand, the program will examine the expanded definition of what we see as time-based work. This includes single channel videos and a live cinema performance from alumni and current undergraduate and graduate School of Art students.

The following films will be shown at this screening:

My Life is a Fucking Mess, Amanda Monette
This piece has been created by extracting user submitted "secrets" to online forums, in this piece 7 speakers voice these confessions, possibly for the first and last time. The secrets are chosen and combined at the discretion of the artist. This piece hopes to remind its viewers that even our secrets aren't our own, others are on this journey with us.

Stephan Spent the Weekend Watching Star Wars, Tala Vahabzadeh and Grant MacManus
Tehran. 1989. "This stupid kid is smoking my cigarettes sneakily. These are Marlboro. They are expensive, do you understand?! If you can't control her, I will. " Said Uncle Djavad furiously. And I ran under my grandma's chador to hide...

Breathless, Alex Nguyen
In this re-enactment of the climax of Godard's "Breathless". I assume the role of Michel, the protagonist, as he dies from several gunshot wounds. I perform the three interpretations of the iconic dialogue between Michel and Patricia, who is his love interest, as well as the cause of his demise. Due to complex subtleties in the translation from French to English, it is difficult to know what context dégueulasse is used in. Thus, it is unclear to the viewer, the feelings that Michel has for Patricia in his final moments.

Zeppelin Phase, Chuck Ivy
In the tradition of Steve Reich's tape loop and "phase" compositions, Zeppelin Phase reexamines the Hindenburg disaster using repetition and incremental change to cause semantic satiation--the phenomenon by which repetition causes a word or phrase to temporarily lose meaning to a listener, who begins to process speech as meaningless sounds.

Hands, Michael Brims
Two hands interacting. The viewer is invited to wonder if they are interacting with each other or with another person, maybe even the viewer. He / She is also invited to ponder about what they might be saying.

Trailer for 42 Cuts, Nick Bontrager
Trailer for 42 Cuts provides documentation of a mechanical sculpture created solely for the purpose which it's name suggests. Born from an obsession over a single scene from Kihachi Okamoto's 1966 film The Sword of Doom, Bontrager has extracted a single visual element from one of the most climactic moments of the film. In extracting this single element, snowfall, the original timing of the film has been retained throughout 42 cuts. Each cut is represented through analogue means in the form of a small rotating wooden sculpture.

Sound Vote, Eddy Roberts
Sound Vote is a short digital film/music video created as a response to the increasing installation and use of electronic voting machines. The intent was to create a sonic environment to underscore the ominous nature of these devices and the secrecy surrounding the way they function. The film suggests a connection between the makers of the voting machine with the military industrial complex: Perpetual war is good business and "assured victory" is achievable.

My Visual Clutter is Not Your Visual Culture, Ray Ogar
A video comprised of 1000s of collaged pieces. The pieces are scanned into the computer and then digitally manipulated and reassembled to portray a group of "culture spies" infiltrating a mashup world. One witnesses a technological disorder. S/he sprouts multitasking eyes. The music is also a mashup of 100+ sounds and beat snippets.

Rhythm Experiment, Ted Closson
A brief narrative told through selected imagery, rhythmic shifts and changes of tempo. The work documents a period of unemployment where stressors increased and decreased based on mail I received.

Untitled, Emily Peacock
In Untitled I shot myself in a situation that is often painful or pleasurable, but I only show my face throughout the process. I speed up the video and repeated the painful or pleasurable winces to reinforce the acuteness of the situation.

Untitled, Melissa Tran
A play of the color red, the presence and absence of light, and repetition, paired with sound creates a feeling of intensity and anxious energy. The pacing and escalation of the piece contribute to the discovery of unknown inner degrees of feeling.

Daily Life, Max Trautner
As texting and emailing becomes seen as a more reliable, and sometimes quicker, form of communication, the modern call and response is becoming a delayed and contemplated process. Daily Life is a quick glimpse of our fading spontaneity. What will we be missing when we call and respond from behind a screen?

An Exploration of Objectification, Max Trautner
"A new study from University of Connecticut researchers Stephenie Chaudoir and Diane Quinn suggests that simply being a bystander to sexism is enough to inspire women to report higher identification with women as a group, and heightened feelings of negativity toward men." -Amanda Hess, Washington City Paper, March 18, 2010

Nine Swimming Pools and an Interruption, Nancy Douthey

Untitled, Osman Galindo

Ritual Cleanse, Brittney Connelly
A girl in a bathtub performs a ritual cleanse through a birthing of varied objects.

Cached Curses, Eileen Maxson
An ear worm exorcism, psychic bubbling of worry, trash, cash and (so last century) curses.

Prologue, Mallory Horn and Kathy Hallmark
Prologue is a dance performance that uses video. This is Kathy and Mallory's first video project and one of many choreography projects.
STOR-02 WILSON MONTESSORI STORY PIRATES
The Story Pirates, the famed performance group that uses children's words to create short films and comedy sketches.

Described as "crazy entertaining" by host Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show," The Story Pirates know every kid has a story to tell-- whether it's a world where cats can fly or a rock opera about fuzzy alien Tickle Monsters. Founded in 2003 to promote a love of creative writing, the Story Pirates have collected words and ideas from children across the country and brought their stories to life on stage and on film.

The Striking Viking Story Pirates was founded in 2003 by a group of Northwestern graduates who were saddened by the discrepancy between the arts-rich environments of our childhoods and the situations we saw in many under-resourced New York City public schools. Their solution was to show kids across New York City that their ideas, their words, and their stories were important.

Director, author, artist and curator Faythe Levine traveled to 15 cities and covered more than 19,000 miles to interview artists, crafters, makers, curators and community members for her feature film debut.
GARR-01 INSIDE THE CIRCLE GARRIOTT, Marcy 2008 Capturing the raw power of a grassroots hip-hop movement, INSIDE THE CIRCLE tells the story of two strikingly talented b-boys, Josh and Omar, former best friends who become dance floor rivals. Immersed in the b-boy culture of defiant creativity, Omar rises to international renown, while Josh tangles with the law. Both of them struggle to keep dance at the center of their lives, and the "B-Boy City" competitive events thrown by visionary street dancer Romeo Navarro serve as emotional milestones in their journey to adulthood. Facing off in intense dance battles that mirror the larger events in their lives, Josh and Omar seek meaning and identity "inside the circle." As Romeo aptly observes: "If you can hold yourself down in battle, you can hold yourself down in life."

Michelle Handelman
Portrait of Dorian Gray
Carol Saft
Selections from the video series My
Brother Todd: Arkville and Ghillie, 2008
Gun Happy, 2001

Michelle Handelman works in the tradition of feminist body artists who use their bodies not just as makers of the work, but as agents of the work. Handelman states, "My work can be described by theorist, Helene Cixous' ideas of Visceral Feminism: aggressively traversing the corporeal landscape in it's various forms of excess and undress, while simultaneously giving it up for the viewer in an overflow of visual and psychological sensations."

Carol Saft creates weird and wonderful videos about her brother Todd. Like video dispatches from the suburban frontlines, the fantasy roles Todd enacts explore the epic side of safety in an otherwise banal world of house alarms and gated developments. Todd is a sort of Everyman: post-Industrial, post 9-11, post-Post-Modern, and there are few heroic moments in such a life as Todd himself asserts, I am just a man trapped in a man s body.

YAG-01 DIED YOUNG, STAYED PRETTY YAGHOOBIAN, Eileen 2008 Died Young, Stayed Pretty is a candid look at the underground poster culture in North America. This unique documentary examines the creative spirit that drives these indie graphic artists. They pick through the dregs of America s schizophrenic culture and piece them back together. What you end up with is a caricature of the black and bloated heart that pulses greed through the US economy. The artists push further into the pulp to grab the attention of passersby, plastering art that s both vulgar and intensely visceral onto the gnarled surfaces of the urban landscape. The film gives us intimate look at some of the giants of this modern subculture. Outside of their own circle, they re virtually unknown. But within their ranks they make up an army of bareknuckle brawlers, publicly arguing the aesthetic merits of octopus imagery and hairy 70s porn stars. They ve created their own visual language for describing the spotty underbelly of western civilization and they're not shy about throwing it in the face of polite society. Along the way, they manage to create posters that are strikingly obscene, unflinchingly blasphemous and often quite beautiful. Yaghoobian shows these artists for what they are: the vivisectionists of America s morbidly obese consumer culture.
APS-53 FEATHERS AND FUR AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2011 Animals have played a central role in some of the best family films of all time.

GUN-01 WHAT'S ON YOUR PLATE? GUND, Catherine 2009 WHAT'S ON YOUR PLATE? is a witty and provocative documentary produced and directed by award-winning Catherine Gund about kids and food politics.
Filmed over the course of one year, the film follows two eleven-year-old multi-racial city kids as they explore their place in the food chain. Sadie and Safiyah take a close look at food systems in New York City and its surrounding areas. With the camera as their companion, the girl guides talk to each other, food activists, farmers, new friends, storekeepers, their families, and the viewer, in their quest to understand what s on all of our plates.
The girls address questions regarding the origin of the food they eat, how it s cultivated, how many miles it travels from the harvest to their plate, how it s prepared, who prepares it, and what is done afterwards with the packaging and leftovers. They visit the usual supermarkets, fast food chains, and school lunchrooms. But they also check into innovative sustainable food system practices by going to farms, greenmarkets, and community supported agriculture programs. They discover that these programs both help struggling farmers to survive on the one hand and provide affordable, locally-grown food to communities on the consumer end, especially to lower-income urban families. In WHAT S ON YOUR PLATE?, the two friends formulate sophisticated and compassionate opinions on the state of their society, and by doing so inspire hope and active engagement in others.

LIV-01 BITS AND PIECES LIVEBOX GALLERY 2010 The use of appropriated materials and collage is so widely used today that we are unaware of its dissemination in every aspect of society. Everyday we are bombarded by sounds, images, ideas and communications on the web. We are not only overwhelmed by this fragmentation, we create our own realities from it and contribute to the phenomenon through our own interactions on line.

The first techniques of collage have a long history, appearing in China with the invention of paper around 200BC. A break from the use of collage as a decorative method to a conceptual tool came in the early days of modernism. Picasso and Braque, the Dada artists, Duchamp, the surrealists, Rauschenberg, the fluxists, and Pop Artists, are just a few of the artists and movements which brought collage into the lexicon of American culture. The concepts of collage are integral, not only to the visual arts, but to all contemporary art mediums, including film, music, architecture, theater, performance art, and dance. Within Pop Culture, cultural collage can be evidenced in the lyrics and riffs of hip-hop and rap music, or the remixes of films and other media found on YouTube.

One could simplify much of video art today as a collage of images, sound and time. Furthermore, the abundance of editing tools available to artists creates a seductive pull to fragment images and sounds hoping to escape convention. The artists participating in Bits and Pieces use the technical tools in a liberating dance, avoiding redundancy and mediocrity by creating fresh formal and conceptual visions. Participating artists: Gregg Biermann, Sean Capone, Valerie George, Henry Gwiazda, Ellen Lake, Jodie Mack, Ruth Pringle, Michael Szpakowski, and the ManosBuckius Cooperative.

the signature scene from the Hollywood musical "Singing' in the Rain" is split into seven layers. Each layer is moving at a different speed and is visible equally in superimposition. At the temporally central point all visual and audio elements coalesce in a single frame. The result uncovers a new cinema, music and dance that are buried within the familiar iconic sequence. uncovers a new cinema, music and dance that are buried within the familiar iconic sequence.

The MBC @ The Gallery
13:00 min, 2007, ManosBuckius cooperative,
the piece considers modes of exhibition (specifically the pedestal), traditional standards of exhibiting art, and the implied conformism of such standards. In video performance, the MBC appropriates pedestals, transforming them into cohorts in a series of video studies focusing on spontaneous movement, primary color, organic and inorganic shapes, and the relationship between the animate and the inanimate. Each video work became part of a larger video quilt of simultaneous, yet independent parts - a colorful, ecstatic display of patterned chaos.

APS-55 REAL AND IMAGINED AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2011 Musiqa and Aurora Picture Show greet the New Year with our annual partnership to present Real and Imagined, an evening of contemporary music and experimental film that explores the boundary between reality and fantasy. The program features music by Eve Beglarian, Evan Chambers, Paul Frehner and Theo Loevendie.

Real and Imagined will include Pierre Jalbert s Visual Abstract, performed live to a film by Jean Detheux, Theo Loevendie s Six Turkish Folk Songs plus music by Eve Beglarian, Paul Frehner and Evan Chambers, along with two films curated by Aurora Picture Show--Takashi Ishida's "Film of the Sea" and Diego Maclean's "The Art of Drowning," based on a poem by Billy Collins. Conducted by Houston Symphony Assistant Conductor Brett Mitchell.

The films include:
The Art of Drowning, 2009, 2min, Diego Maclean
The Art of Drowning is a short animated film directed by Diego Maclean. It is based on a poem by the same name written by American poet Billy Collins. In it we ponder the possibilities of what awaits us at the end of our lives.

Film of the Sea, 2007, 12min, Takashi Ishida
A projector projects a film within the film of a blue monochrome seascape onto a wall. Through the use of stop motion animation, blue paint appears to flow out from the frame of the projected image of the sea. The blue paint level rises to fill the entire room, leaving an empty white screen in opposition. The relationship between the projected image and its painted representation, the negative and positive space within the projected film and the room in which the film is projected, shifts constantly throughout the film like the infinite variations of waves in the sea. The boundaries between film, painting, performance and sculpture are also collapsed as the moving image is realized in the space. The main theme in "Film of the Sea" is repetition. The repetition of the moving images is echoed in the soundtrack. Long silences, three music works on water by the Morris label, simulated film projector noise using voice and water sounds are manipulated and repeated in the composition by ADACHI Tomomi.

HAR-05 WHAT IF, WHY NOT? UNDERGROUND ADVENTURES WITH ANT FARM HARRISON, Laura and FEDERICI, Elizabeth 2009 Co-presented with the Houston Cinema Arts Society, Aurora is pleased to present a sneak preview of the full length independent video documentary, What If, Why Not?: Underground Adventures with Ant Farm, first presented as a rough cut at a video salon with Aurora.

This is the first film to delve into the work of the renegade 1970s art/architecture collective Ant Farm, best known for its iconic land-art piece Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX. Radical architects, video pioneers, and mordantly funny cultural commentators, the Ant Farmers created a body of deeply subversive work that questioned everything by posting a set of creative and comedic alternatives. Combining futuristic notions gleaned from Buckminster Fuller and NASA with lo-fi production methods; utopian visions with a love of trashy backyard Americana; and a respect for high intellectual ideas with an irreverent, often crass sense of humor, Ant Farm s work was quintessential American in its ethos and methodology and emblematic of a period in American history that continues to captivate and shape modern culture. As architects, the Ant Farmers designed The House of the Century, a ferrocement residence of organic shapes near Angleton, Texas, and they promoted inflatable structures as affordable, anticonsumerist options for shelter. The Ant Farmers were also video art pioneers whose work offered devastating critiques of the mass media. Media Burn (1975) propelled a Cadillac through a wall of flaming televisions and The Eternal Frame (also 1975) reenacted and refilmed the Kennedy assassination in Dallas s Dealey Plaza. Incorporating archival video, new footage shot over the past nine years and computer animation based on period architectural sketches, this multilayered film considers Ant Farm s significance in today s neoconformist culture and its impact on the artists and designers of the future. What we were trying to do was the ultimate form of architecture, which was predicting how society would use space, land, and time, said Curtis Schreier of Ant Farm.
APS-56 STEERS AND BEERS AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2011 Dress in your Western best and show off your rowdy ranch diva at an evening inspired by rodeo season in Houston.

HAR-06 SPACE, LAND AND TIME: UNDERGROUND ADVENTURES WITH ANT FARM HARRISON, Laura and FEDERICI, Elizabeth 2010 What we were trying to do was the ultimate form of architecture, which was predicting how society would use space, land and time.
Curtis Schreier, ANT FARM

Space, Land and Time: Underground Adventures with Ant Farm is the first film to consider the work of the 1970s architecture collective Ant Farm, best known for its iconic land-art piece Cadillac Ranch. Radical architects, video pioneers, and mordantly funny cultural commentators, the Ant Farmers created a body of deeply subversive work that questioned the boundaries of architecture and predicted many of the ideas and technologies we take for granted today. Incorporating breathtaking archival video, new footage shot over ten years and animation based on zany period sketches, this film is about the joy of creation in a time when there were no limits.

This screening is presented in collaboration with American Association of Museums Conference and in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts Houston with special thanks to Discovery Green Park for their support.

Beth Federici is a filmmaker, educator, and media activist. Most recently she codirected/produced the documentary Neither Here Nor There, which documents a Bosnian refugee family resettling in Missouri while struggling to come to terms with the past they left in war-torn Srebrenica. She currently works as a freelance producer/editor in New York City.

After eight years as an editor on French feature films, Laura Harrison returned to the U.S. to complete an master of arts degree in documentary film production at Stanford University. Laura s documentary Secret People, about leprosy in America, was broadcast nationally on PBS in 2000. In addition to making films about a diverse range of subjects, Laura teaches film history in Houston.

APS-59 ART AND ACTIVISM: PROJECTS OF JOHN AND DOMINIQUE DE MENIL AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2010 In collaboration with The Menil Collection, Aurora Picture Show will present still and moving images inspired by the book release of "Art and Activism: Projects of John and Dominique de Menil". Edited by Josef Helfenstein and Laureen Schipsi, the book is first to examine the Houston philanthropists' contributions to art, architecture, film, and the civil and human rights movements.

The lavishly illustrated Art and Activism: Projects of John and Dominique de Menil is the first book to examine the couple's wide-ranging interests over half a century -- from art and architecture to philanthropy and politics. The de Menils established university art and media-studies departments; gave early architectural commissions to Philip Johnson and Renzo Piano; sponsored individual scholarships and funded civil-rights campaigns; built an ecumenical chapel with the painter Mark Rothko; presented one of the nation's first exhibitions of racially integrated contemporary artists; took the Surrealist master René Magritte to a rodeo; and introduced Andy Warhol to an awed Houston. All the while they were building the art collection that would one day be housed in the world-renowned Houston museum that bears the family name -- the Menil Collection.

Art and Activism: Projects of John and Dominique de Menil is a book of many voices -- artists, activists, students, scholars, and family. Illustrated throughout with works of art from the Menil Collection and rarely seen archival photographs, the large-format book also includes private correspondence and reminiscences from artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Jasper Johns, Man Ray, Barnett Newman, Robert Rauschenberg, Mark Rothko, and Niki de Saint Phalle.

DVD is an interview with the couple from 1972 about the Rothko Chapel and Newman's Broken Obelisk.

A City To Yourself
Nicole MacDonald, 2008, 24:00

Everyone's heard of the crumbling infrastructure that follows a shrinking, post-industrial city like Detroit. But what about the increase in space for outdoor art, less traffic, little gridlock, the return of urban wildlife and green space, and some of the pluses of having a city to yourself?

Extremely Shorts Film Festival Screenings and the Closing Party Picnic are scheduled for June 17 - 18, 2011. The early deadline for submissions is April 29th, with the late deadline being May 10th. Audience Choice cash awards are given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

Aurora is honored to have Brent Hoff of Wholphin DVD for this year's juror. Brent Hoff is the editor and co-founder of Wholphin DVD where he films drunk bees, crying competitions, and illegal trans-border volleyball matches. Before that he authored Mapping Epidemics, a book on pandemic disease transmission, made TV at The Daily Show, VH1, and Nickelodeon, and wrote articles about squid. He has four feature film scripts in pre-production including one on the Last days of Old Dirty Bastard. He hopes one of them actually gets made someday.

Wholphin is a quarterly DVD magazine published by McSweeney's, lovingly encoded with unique and ponderable films designed to make you feel the way we felt when we learned that dolphins and whales sometimes do it. IFC describes Wholphin as "...the most relentlessly fascinating and inventive showcase for new short films in the country."

MON-01 A SHIFT IN PERCEPTION MONCEAUX, Dan 2006 'A Shift in Perception' is a humanistic, informal examination of living with blindness. Taking an experimental approach to documentary making, conversations with three blind South Australian women are illustrated using a broad range of camera techniques on Super8 film (shot predominantly in black and white). The makers use stop-motion animation, time lapse and many other methods of abstraction to invite the viewer to celebrate the beauty of the women's unique perspectives. With voices set in the midst of an experimental score by composer Alex Carpenter, the film washes over its audience like a dream; a heightened sensory experience. Described by Realtime OnScreen magazine as a visual treat the women s insights and the filmmakers artistic approach are memorable, evocative and poignant.
VAR-33 VISIONS OF WARHOL VARIOUS ARTISTS 1963-1990 Program includes:

AWARD PRESENTATION TO ANDY WARHOL, Jonas Mekas

ANDY WARHOL S SILVER FLOTATIONS, Willard Maas

ANDY WARHOL, Marie Menken

SCENES FROM THE LIFE OF ANDY WARHOL, Jonas Mekas

Visions of Warhol presents scenes from the life of Andy Warhol, as seen by three pioneer avant-garde filmmakers and close friends of the Pop artist.
Jonas Mekas, the irrepressible force behind the promotion and preservation of experimental film, is also known for his rapidfire diary films. Award Presentation to Andy Warhol (1964) documents Mekas fiving Warhol the Film Culture Independent Film Award, set to the music of the Supremes. His Scenes from the Life of Andy Warhol (1963-90) chronicles not only Warhol, but also the social and cultural excitement that swirled around him, throbbing to a hypnotic Velvet Underground beat. Willard Maas was husband of filmmaker, painter, and actress Marie Menken. Together, they were for Warhol the last of the great Bohemians. Their films Andy Warhol s Silver Flotations (1966) and Andy Warhol (1965) have in common a lyric lightness and a love for jolting visual rhythms.
MEN-01 MAX ERNST HANGING DE MENIL, Francois & John 2010 In this revealing documentary, patron, collector, and curator Dominique de Menil hangs the 1973 exhibition Inside the Sight, in conversation with Max Ernst, the 20th-century Surrealist artist. From installation to opening party, the events that transpire, as captured by filmmakers John and Francois de Menil, provide a rare and intimate glimpse into the process of making an exhibition.
With a cinema verite approach, the film captures quiet, yet special, moments in the events that transpire over the course of making an exhibition: Dominique de Menil measures walls during construction, oversees the uncrafting of paintings, and shops for plants to put in the gallery. We also witness singular moments, as we listen in on Rosalind Krauss interviewing Ernst and Dominique de Menil explaining to the artist how the show s layout is filled with unexpected surprises. This film conclcudes with a gala affair. In sweeping shots of opening night, the artist, the de Menils, and the patrons mingle in celebration.
The original 1973 footage was shot by the de Menils son Francois de Menil and is newly edited by the de Menils grandson John de Menil, with Jack McDonald. Interspersed witth shots of archival photographs, Max Ernst Hangnig is an intimate portrait of family, an illuminating glimpse into the challenges of putting together an exhibition, and a fascinating look at a curatorial philosophy, guided by a deep spiritual awareness that continues to guide the curatorial decisins at the Menil Collection. It is also a unique view of the work of Max Ernst, an artist who the de Menils first met in Paris in the 1930s. Championing his work early on, they were dedicated to the way in which his art makes us see the world differently. Museum of Modern art curator William Rubin, summarized Ernst s importance when he wrote, in the extraordinary variety of his styles and techniques, Max Ernst is to Dada and Surrealism what Picasso is to 20th century art as a whole.
BL-07 A FILM IS A BURNING PLACE BLADER, Enid Baxter 2009 This compilation of experimental short films and videos by Enid Baxter Blader unfolds like the pages of a lost diary, with fleeting glimpses into an anonymous someone's memories and desires. A filmmaker, painter, and bluegrass musician, Enid Baxter Blader finds inspiration in ruminations on rural life, stormy weather of the emotional and environmental variety, majestic landscapes, and small town civility. DVD includes an essay by novelist and journalist, Ben Ehrenreich.

STEU-02 THE GARDEN STEUERNAGEL, Ann 2010 Assistant Professor of Art + Design Ann Steuernagel s short video, The Garden, is the 2011 winner of Best of Show for experimental work at the 30th Black Maria Film and Video Festival.
The Garden, (2010) (10 min.), is a reflection on climate change. It is created from found, recycled film footage and is presented in three parts.
I work almost exclusively with found footage: educational and industrial films, and home movies, wrote Steuernagel. Once I have appropriated the footage I practice the art of montage with great pleasure by colliding disparate images, looping clips and manipulating time.
Such techniques accentuate the gestures and quotidian rhythms of my subjects distilling the essence of a time, place or idea, she continued. Although a narrative is never explicit one may be implied.

ABOUT SPACE CITY GAMELAN
Space City Gamelan is Houston's Indonesian orchestra featuring a variety of instruments such as metallophones, xylophones, drums, gongs, and bamboo flutes. Our music features a fusion of traditional, contemporary and new compositions developed by a master musician from Indonesia. A gamelan set of instruments is a distinct entity, built and tuned to stay together; instruments from different gamelan are not interchangeable. We play western Javanese (Sundanese) music on a customized hybrid set of Central and Sundanese instruments. Traditional gamelan music is described as repetitive and trace inducing. Because Space City Gamelan focuses on the music as the point of interest, the composition forms are much more dynamic and engaging for the listener, making our sound accessible, lively and highly original.

Teoría del Color (Theory of color / 2011)
by Hugo Marin
2011 (3 min)
Theory of color addresses failure as a fundamental historical condition. Its audio is composed with sound files from the World Trade Center attacks and recordings of Pruit Igoe s implosion, both projects from Japanese architect Minoru Yamasaki.

Two extremes, two edges, two knots, a here and a there.

The Rare Circumstances of an Inertia That Distances What I do From What I Could Have Done
by Adrián Villa and Benjamín Ramírez
2010 (4 min)
Structures inflict a powerful seduction. They easily captivate sight and mind. But at the same time something makes people doubt about them. Suspicion and skepticism sometimes win over the blunt conception and subsequent praise most constructing acts fall into. Common condemn to that strange emptiness that lies behind the idea of a pastime or a hobby is an example of such resistances. Nevertheless, from a broad perspective, aren t all constructions a way of modulating time, of letting it go by?

Jugando Solitario
by Colectivo Individual
2010
Experimental video clip that describes the relationship between man and technology, violence hidden in a click, the progressive loneliness and the isolation from reality.

La vida, Los Objetos
by Anibal Maldonado
2009 (5:45 min)
Objects can interact with things that concern us and oppress us, something we carry in our minds every morning, the weight of our lives, our own difficulties, our conditions, our unbearable and desirable movement, the secrets, the desire. What if the hair dryer it overheats while you manage to get to work? What if the vacuum cleaner broke and instead of swallowing dust it began to spit it? What would happen when the power goes out, when lightning strikes and burns your computer? "When you have a virus? When the phone is not in tone? When the blender is damaged?

Retrato de una Familia
by Victoria Rivera
2010 (8 min)

Underwater Lullaby

UNEHIMLICH (Animation)
by Juan Manuel Escobar
2007 (3 min)
Experimental short film where the character gets involved in a really sinister and anguish situations. Unheimlich, wakes anguish feelings in the spectator and the doubt if what they are seeing might be possible in real life.

ACSD Mar de Dirac (ACDS Dirac s sea / 2009)
by Hugo Marin
2009, (4 min)
Analysis and composition of a diffuse system was born out of my interest for image and language, especially in the way they conjugate. In this work language, more than making a cross cut over the image, in an effort to explain it, must maintain parallel, thus preserving composite limits. I have thought about this in a similar way as to how Spinoza explained the relation between soul and body. I believe such should be the equidistance towards the image. The reference to language in its impossibility of silencing and yet saying is emptied, like in the game of emptying and filling, in which the identity of being is not given by filling, where the being is not what has been filled or emptied but rather both things at once.

Amor y Odio
by Colectivo Individual
2004
Experimental video clip that takes ownership over the image of one of the most important TV shows in Latin America such as "El Chavo del Ocho". The scene shows the characters of the series making music with unconventional objects, synchronized with electronic music created by the colectivo individual.

Lighthearted
by Felipe Ruiz
2011 (2:54 min)
Lighthearted was realized as part of a graduation thesis project at the University of Texas at Dallas. It was completed in December of 2010. The film takes light-painting techniques combined with animation storytelling to narrate the character's tale and his search companionship.
VAR-28 MARK ALLEN SHOW 2006 VARIOUS ARTISTS 2006 Program includes:

BABY HANDLERS, Andrew and Gina Garnett

DEVIL'S CANYON, Kelly Sears (2005, TRT 6:10)
Devil's Canyon weaves together a narrative growing out of a collection of abandoned images and super 8 landscapes of the American West. Mechanical horses, a doomed automobile town, and distressed cowboys are composited into a tale of American tragedy. The death drive of the landscape of the Old West infects the people, ideas and hopes of those who reside on it.

SPEECH LESSON, Julie Lequin (2005, TRT 5:19)
As a native French speaker, Lequin attempts to clarify a monologue about her own work through improved English enunciation. Playing double roles as both herself and the (voice-overed) speech coach, the conversation appears comprehensible at first but quickly falls to ambiguity and confusion.

LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL, Harry Dodge (2004, TRT 15:43)
Based on a live performance by Stanya Kahn, Let the Good Times Roll shuffles time and location as two loners meet in the desert on their way to a rock show. Stories of seasonal depression and finding unexpected exuberance emerge in suspended, Waiting for Godot-like circumstances.
NAG-01 TYPE FACE NAGAN, Justine 2010 Typeface focuses on a rural Midwestern museum and print shop where international artists meet retired craftsmen and together navigate the convergence of modern design and traditional technique.

It's a Thursday afternoon and all is quiet in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. Main Street is virtually empty, and there are for rent signs in several shop windows. In the last few years, the un-employment rate has been consistently on the rise in the region. Factories are leaving the heartland for cheaper locales and the little town of Two Rivers is struggling to re-invent itself. Jim VanLanen, one of the town s most industrious entrepreneurs, began developing small museums as a way to bring tourists and industry to the area.

A few blocks off the main drag, in a section of the old cavernous Hamilton printing factory, a lone employee waits in the most popular of these museums for visitors to come. A couple of individuals straggle in every few days and then, come Friday, the museum fills with life. Machines hum, presses print, artists buzz about. One weekend each month, the quiet of Two Rivers is interrupted as carloads of artisans drive in from across the Midwest. The place comes alive as printmaking workshops led by, and filled with, some of the region s top creative talent descend on the sleepy enclave. The museum is significant to the town s history, but more importantly, its existence is critical to the worldwide design community who are passionate about the history of their craft and its function in the contemporary field. They believe the future of their industry may lie in the past.

Typeface, Kartemquin's latest documentary in progress, will bring this fascinating junction of historical and contemporary, as well as rural and urban America together for enjoyment and contemplation. This film will be of interest to art and graphic design enthusiasts, to teachers as an educational resource, and to anyone looking for a film about perseverance and preservation in the heart of America.

For each DiverseWorks exhibition, Aurora curates a screening installation that takes place in the private screening room known as Flickerlounge.

Blurring the distinction between performance, video art and body art, these young artists from the University of Houston work with ideas about media, personal narrative and social commentary. Using their bodies as tools for expression, short videos include a father s excessive travel souveniers that take on a life of their own, a poetic line of sand, illegal immigrant stories, tearful false eyelashes and many others.
COF-01 VEINS IN THE GULF COFFMAN, Elizabeth & Ted Hardin 2011 The words and image of Louisiana poet Martha Serpas guide the viewer as we journey through the remnants of Louisiana s bayou regions, flying over the wetlands, examining historic aerial photographs, new satellite imagery, and traveling at water level while shrimping for dwindling seafood. Levee board politicians, water specialists, engineers, and musicians all offer their advice and memories of home after this century s devastating storms and oil spills.

Levee Director Windell Curole testifies before Congress to get money to build safer levees, warns his Parish residents that their land is sinking, fights with politicians to agree on a solution, flies over his French-speaking Cajun home in Leeville, and plays guitar in the Hurricane Levee Band.

Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program Director Kerry St. Pe has led the conservation effort in southern Louisiana for decades. Kerry works hard to bring oystermen, the oil industry and government together to try and build a consensus for how the environment, homes and jobs can all be saved.

Water quality specialist Andrew Barron works right next to Kerry, visiting marshes and examining plant life during the day, and gets kidney dialysis during the night, letting a machine cleanse his blood, just as the wetlands cleanse our drinking water.

Cajun Bluesman Tab Benoit born and raised in Houma sings all over the country, but fights hard for the wetlands, organizing festivals, appearing in films, raising awareness for every audience he sings for.

Plaquemines Parish Coastal Zone Management director P.J. Hahn played an active role after the B.P. oil disaster, monitoring oil in the estuaries and dying wildlife. He fights against land loss by arguing for sediment transfer through pipelines a faster solution to stopping land loss.

Radio talk show host Kirk Cheramie interviews local politicians, business owners, poets, writers, and visiting filmmakers. His disgust with the system resonates with the callers and leads him back to his Native American roots.
SHEE-01 THE TEN MARK SHEEHAN, Joe 2010 Somber, gray-scale shots of domesticity illustrate the impact of loss, memory and neglect in an old man's life.
REI-01 DEATH BY DEATH REID, Joel 2010 A young couple walks into a corner burger stop. Jack (Steven J. Wilson) has forgotten his wallet, but girlfriend Kate (Heidi Ervin) cheerfully offers to retrieve it after a loving peck on the cheek.

She exits. The place explodes.

Thus begins Joel Reid's 15 minute short film, Death By Death, a high-spirited action-filled black comedy about a love triangle composed of three violent paramours. Jack is a psychopath, recently reformed by the need to organize. His new crime syndicate bores the bloodthirsty Kate, who is soon humiliated in front of Jack's cronies. To retaliate, she finds an accomplice in the older (and lovelorn) Ben, played with an interesting sadness by Wynn Reichert.
MON-02 SUPERMARKET SHOWREEL MONCEAUX, Dan and Emma Sterling 2007-10 Time-lapsed and abstracted montages of modern city lights, a countryside courtship in the late 1800's, and natural disasters come together with an experimental score to create a totally sublime, dreamlike experience. Supermarket is a live dose of original electronic music and imagery, delivered with equal emphasis. Breakbeats of varying tempo ranging from dub and glitch through to dancehall and drum n' bass are met with video- animated and celluloid imagery ranging from the abstract to the sampled and remixed.

LEO-01 BEAUTIFUL LOSERS LEONARD, Joshua & Aaron Rose 2008 The greatest cultural accomplishments in history have never been the result of the brainstorms of marketing men, corporate focus groups, or any homogenized methods; they have always happened organically. More often than not, these manifestations have been the result of a few like-minded people coming together to create something new and original for no other purpose than a common love of doing it. In the 1990s, a loose-knit group of American artists and creators, many just out of their teens, began their careers in just such a way. Influenced by the popular underground youth subcultures of the day, such as skateboarding, graffiti, street fashion and independent music, artists like Shepard Fairey, Mark Gonzales, Spike Jonze, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Barry McGee, Phil Frost, Chris Johanson, Harmony Korine, and Ed Templeton began to create art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Many had no formal training and almost no conception of the inner workings of the art world.
BECKE-01 AMERICAN ARTIFACT: THE RISE OF AMERICAN ROCK POSTER ART BECKER, Merle 2009 American Artifact chronicles the rise of American rock poster art since its birth in the '60s.

Director Merle Becker crosses the country interviewing rock poster artists from the different eras to discover that America is currently in the midst of a 21st century "rock poster art movement", where thousands of artists around the country are doing silk screened rock poster art inspired by their local scene, the music of our time, and the spirit of our era.

The film explores the history / rise of the current rock poster movement in America, and features a cast of quirky / interesting, and extremely talented rock poster artists, talking about their work, and telling the story of their underground art movement.

Beginning in the 1960s in San Francisco with the birth of the dance concert, a rock poster accompanied almost every show that was put on during that era. Soon, people began pulling the posters off of the telephone poles, almost as quickly as they were put up, and promoters such as Bill Graham started to give them out at the end of his shows to advertise the next week's show.

The art, both beautiful and edgy, closely parallels the changes in American culture throughout the decades.

"Posters" in the '80s were actually "flyers" done for punk shows on Xerox machines in local libraries, or at Kinko's. They were glued to buildings and phone poles surreptitiously at night by kids in the scene. In this pre-computer era, the flyers were, for lack of a better comparison "the MySpace of the '80s".

Today, America is seeing a resurgence in this art form brought upon by the popularity of websites like GigPosters.com, and the ease of screenprinting. Artists like EMEK, Tara McPherson, and Jay Ryan are creating beautiful works of art for contemporary groups like The Decemberists and Death Cab For Cutie.

This extraordinary film, which includes interviews with over 30 artists, takes the viewer on a journey through the different decades and incarnations of this rebellious art form, and spends time with, arguably, some of the finest artists of this era talking about what inspired their truly American works of art.

FEATURING: Stanley Mouse, Frank Kozik, Art Chantry, EMEK, COOP, Derek Hess, Mark Arminski, Tara McPherson, Justin Hampton, Victor Moscoso, Jermaine Rogers, Jay Ryan, Chuck Sperry, Ron Donovan, Lindsey Kuhn, Leia Bell, Jim Pollock, Randy Tuten, Jim Sherraden & Hatch Show Print, Scrojo, Winston Smith, Print Mafia, Paul Imagine, Kevin Bradley, Julie Belcher, Jeff Wood, Steve Walters, Mat Daly, Stainboy, David Singer, Dennis Loren, Mike Martin, Gary Grimshaw, and Chris Shaw.

Her video art installations with filmmaker/artist Otis Ike, have been displayed in art galleries and museums in Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston and Philadelphia. She is currently a fellow of the Mexican Fund for Culture and the Arts.

BRA-03 BY BRAKHAGE: AN ANTHOLOGY, VOLUME 2 (Disc 1) BRAKHAGE, Stan and Joseph Cornell 1982-94 Working outside the mainstream, the wildly prolific, visionary Stan Brakhage made more than 350 films over a half century. Challenging all taboos in his exploration of birth, sex, death, and the search for God, he turned his camera on explicit lovemaking, childbirth, even autopsy. Many of his most famous works pursue the nature of vision itself and transcend the act of filming. Some, including the legendary Mothlight, were created without using a camera at all, as he pioneered the art of making images directly on film, by drawing, painting, and scratching. With these two volumes, we present the definitive Brakhage collection fifty-six of his works, from across his career, in high-definition digital transfers.

APS-79 CINEMATIC GRAPHITE AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2012 Program Includes:

12 Sketches by Magali Charrier - 12 Sketches uses animation and editing in a unique exploration of the liminal zones between you and me, here and there, sound and silence, movement and stillness.

Tra La La by Magali Charrier - Tra La La is a poetic reflection on the ephemeral nature of innocence and childhood. This fantasy black and white film uses stop frame animation and live performance.

Four Parallel Lines by Mary Ellen Strom and Ann Carlson - Four Parallel Lines is a video made in collaboration with four men who work as day laborers, Jose Bautista, Joel Gomez, Lisandrow Vicente and Carlos Hernandez. Four parallel lines are drawn on a stretch of beach using 6 x 2 inch lumber. This scene references Walter De Marias s, 1968 earthwork in which he drew two parallel mile long lines in the Mojave Desert.

Body Tracks by Ana Mendieta - "The turning point in art was in 1972, when I realized that my paintings were not real enough for what I want the image to convey and by real I mean I wanted my images to have power, to be magic."

Painting Face Down by Paul McCarthy - McCarthy uses his own body as a tool to examine the process of making art: He becomes a human paintbrush as he drags himself across the floor while holding an open can of white paint.

Sets by Cheryl Donegan - Playing on stereotypes of the artist's studio activities and the process of making art, the artist creates marks on paper and on her partner s body.

Brooklyn Bridge by Joan Jonas - Still photographs, live video, and superimposed drawings created on a Quantel Paintbox are fused in this visual poem dedicated to a New York City landmark, the Brooklyn Bridge.

Meer by Robert Todd - Marks made in a sea of refracting reflections.

Keep It Together by Thais Verissimo - In Keep It Together, a line of red slowly diminishes while a hand futilely and continuously attempts to keep it whole.

Matchstick by Jeff Scher - Matchstick was painted in watercolors and water-soluble crayons on 3-foot long, three inches thin strips of paper. The style grew out of paintings I make for a pre-cinema Praxinoscope*, which grew from experiments with painting on film. Matchstick was mostly painted frame at a time under a digital camera mounted on a traditional animation stand with a mechanical stage, which was used to keep the paper moving. The idea was to paint and draw abstract visuals that could dance along to the psychedelic song by the band American Royalty.

Train of Thought by Leo Bridle - In a world made entirely out of paper, the wistful drawings in a man s sketchbook are brought to life by the rhythm of a train journey.

1:1 by Richard Reeves - Exploring the one to one relationship between sound and picture. Both image and sounds are etched directly onto 35mm film. The first part of the visuals are actually the sounds you hear.

The video features both animation and footage of the human body and merges them both on screen to form a mix of real and imagined.
APS-82 WALKING IN AIR AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2012 Being outside often feels magical the fresh air, the green space, the limitless possibilities for adventure. For children, it is a place for mystery and imagination. For adults, it is more often a setting for working and living. Even then, however, the outdoors still retains bits of magic and grandeur, ready to relax and thrill one at a moment s notice. These short films all feature the outdoors as a setting and, in some cases, a character.

MATR-02 MIWA MATREYEK: MYTH AND INFRASTRUCTURE -- AND OTHER WORKS MATREYEK, Miwa 2010 Miwa Matreyek performs in a multi-media production using projected animation she has created. Her shadow becomes an integral part of a fantastical world: she traverses oceanscapes and cityscapes as she conjures magical domestic scenes with light and shadow.

Matreyek is an internationally recognized animator, designer, and multi-media artist based in Los Angeles. Her work explores how animation transforms when it is combined with body and space (and vice-versa). In her video project-based installations, animation takes on a more physical and present quality, while body and space take on a more fantastical quality.

CLO-01 SLEEPING BETTY CLOUTIER, Claude 2007 Betty sleeps in a narcoleptic stupor. The king appeals to his subjects to wake the Princess, and they respond: Uncle Henri VIII, Aunt Victoria, an emotional alien, a cool witch and a handsome prince. This worthy Prince Charles lookalike has to leave his royal suburb to save the princess. But will Betty be wakened with just a kiss?

Drawn in India ink, this animation sets the Perrault classic in Claude Cloutier's disjointed, anachronistic and playful universe.

LUS-01 STICK EM UP! LUSTER, Alex 2012 Stick 'Em Up is a captivating film that explores the little-known world of wheat pasting, an inner-city art form that s as provocative as it is misunderstood. Documentary filmmaker Alex Luster delves into the minds and motivations behind some of Houston's most notorious guerilla street artists, capturing the lifespan of their art... conception, creation, placement and ultimately removal by the city's abatement enforcement.  With commentary by legendary street artists and top local law enforcement officials, Stick Em Up! is a gritty, street-smart documentary that reveals the secret truth behind the prolific images you see every day in cities all across the nation. Interviews include artists Give Up, Shepard Fairey, DUAL, Eyesore, Cutthroat and Bomit.

Alex Luster is a documentary filmmaker & television producer living in Houston, Texas. His passion for being behind the camera came at an early age. It led to his first job in broadcast TV at the age of 14. His appreciation for urban art has culminated in the documenting of a rising inner city art form. Luster was awarded the prestigious Promax Silver Muse Award in addition to two Lone Star Emmy Awards.
ROS-01 INNI ROS, Sigur 2008 Aurora Picture Show and QFest partner on the Houston premiere of INNI, the visually breathtaking experimental documentary about Iceland's incomparable and influential rock band, Sigur Rós. INNI will be presented as a multi-screen immersive cinematic event both indoors and outdoors on Friday, July 27 at 7PM in the new home of Aurora Picture Show located at 2442 Bartlett. In addition to the screening, there will be a performance by Two Star Symphony.
 
Filmed in a manner that invites both intimacy and claustrophobia, INNI cocoons the viewer in a one-on-one relationship with the band, eschewing the audience for closeness, depicting how it feels for both band and fan to experience Sigur Rós live. The film's atmosphere is enhanced by the re-filming of the original digital footage on 16mm, which was then re-filmed again, sometimes through prisms and other found objects, allowing INNI to look and feel like something recovered from the past. Interspersed with this is archival footage drawn from the band's previous decade, dating back as far as 1998. This juxtaposition gives viewers the full scope of Sigur Rós' origins, evolution, originality and influence.
MOU-01 FRANK FILM MOURIS, Frank 2010 In this acclaimed short film, a landmark in the use of cutout animation, American director Frank Mouris presents a one-of-a-kind autobiography that is both audacious and poignant.
APS-85 AURORA PICTURE SHOW AWARD AND GALA 12th ANNUAL AURORA AWARD DINNER HONORING LAURIE SIMMONS AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2012 Aurora Picture Show will present the 12th annual Aurora Award to photographer and filmmaker Laurie Simmons. Aurora Picture Show's Aurora Award Dinners are unparalleled events honoring some of the most significant media artists of the 21st Century and 22nd Century. The Aurora Award is an honor given to an artist who has exhibited extraordinary originality in the fields of media and multimedia art.  This event is also the most important annual fundraiser or Aurora, providing the foundation of support for the next season of screening events, in addition to funding our education programs.

Laurie Simmons is an internationally recognized artist.  Since the mid-70 s, Simmons has staged scenes for her camera with dolls, ventriloquist dummies, mannequins and occasionally people, to create images with intensely psychological subtexts. Marked by intentional dislocations and unexpected conjunctions, the nonlinear narratives she creates echo those of memories and dreams. By the early 1980 s Simmons was at the forefront of a new generation of artists, predominantly woman, whose use of the media as subject began a new dialogue in contemporary art.

As part of the event, Aurora will screen a selection of works by Simmons, including excerpts from The Music of Regret, from Tiny Furniture, and a short video with The Love Doll.  During cocktails, a color-blocked slide show of still images created for The Gothenburg Museum in Sweden exhibition of Laurie's work will feature Red, Yellow and Blue images. 

Each year Aurora selects a Texas artist to create an art piece symbolic of the Aurora Award.  This year Gabriel Martinez will create a sculpture that will be presented to Laurie Simmons during the award presentation at the gala.  Martinez is a a Houston artist who attended the Glassell School of Arts Core Residency Program and was also an artist-in-residence at Project Row Houses.

Past Aurora Award honorees include Joan Jonas (2011), Christian Marclay (2010), Doug Aitken (2009), Steina and Woody Vasulka (2007), Miranda July (2006), Isaac Julien (2005), Ant Farm (2004), Laurie Anderson (2003), William Wegman (2002), and Tony Oursler (2001). 

Attendees to the intimate Aurora Award Dinner are treated to a catered meal, a video screening of exclusive works from the artist, and a brief award ceremony.  Tickets start at $350.  Attire is casual cocktail.
 
Schedule for the evening:
6:30pm Cocktails
7:30pm Dinner
8:30pm Award presentation and screening

This event is sold out but we greatly appreciate donations to support our mission and programs.  Please make donations online or call us at 713.868.2101 to purchase over the phone.
APS-87 North Star: Mark di Suvero; Co-presented with Menil Collection AURORA PICTURE SHOW 2012 Concert Tonight
By Roy Fridge

A Gathering of the Species
By Roy Fridge

North Star: Mark di Suervo
By Francois de Menil

Directed by Francois de Menil, written by art historian Barbara Rose, and with an original musical score by Philip Glass, North Star: Mark di Suvero has been newly re-digitized and will be screened outdoors in Menil Collection Park. First released in 1977, this feature-length documentary is an illuminating portrait of Mark di Suvero. One of the most important sculptors of the Twentieth Century, the artist is renowned for his formal orchestration of steel and found industrial material. The film consists of biographical interviews and discussions with the artist about his relationship to the tumultuous political moments in the United States, interlaced with shots of the installation and construction of his sculptural work. 
 
Presented in partnership with the Menil Collection, the film will be screened in Menil Park near the di Suvero sculpture Bygones (1976), which is featured on Voices of the Menil, the museum s new Cell Phone Audio Walk. In addition to the feature, the program will start with short films from the early 1960's by the late Texas artist Roy Fridge.  
MEI-02 My Heart is an Idiot MEIKLEJOHN, David 2010 My Heart Is An Idiot is a documentary about love that spans two years and over a hundred cities. The film captures Davy Rothbart's manic road-tripping lifestyle as he tours North America in a van promoting his magazine FOUND, an annual collection of discarded and recovered notes, letters, photographs, and ephemera. Along the way, Davy seeks advice on his tortured love life from a motley crew of characters (including Zooey Deschanel, Ira Glass, Newt Gingrich, and Davy's mom), and attempts to follow that advice, with alternately comical and tragic results. Like Sherman's March doused in Maker's Mark, My Heart Is An Idiot is a cautionary kiss on the lips of Generation Irony. When everyone has a strategy, love is unbelievable.

SEM-01 SEMICONDUCTOR PROGRAM DISK 1 SEMICONDUCTOR JARMAN, Ruth; GERHARDT, Joe 2012 Aurora Picture Show presents the 9th annual Media Archeology Festival from Thursday, September 20 to Saturday, September 22, 2012 in Houston. Presented by Aurora Picture Show in collaboration with both the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts at the University of Houston and Nameless Sound, the multi-media festival showcases artists who use, manipulate, recycle and reinvent electronic media to create live multidisciplinary performances.

Media Archeology: Real Time will present artists whose work is a hybridization of moving images and acoustics to explore the relationships and open the definitions of film, music, art and performance. From innovative new technologies to traditional analogue methodologies these artists fuse genres to create a contemporary interdisciplinary experience grown out of sound and light.

On the first night of the festival, Aurora kicks off our annual Media Archeology Festival with a party and presentation of films by Semiconductor. Semiconductor is artist duo Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt based in the UK. Semiconductor literally makes films out of scientific data, sound and music, transforming it into a visual material to imagine new landscapes and worlds. They have developed a long term and rigorous practice that draws on innovations in science and media to form a visually and sonically rich body of work. Over the course of their career they have collaborated with a wide range of musicians and sound artists including Oren Ambarchi, DAT Politics, Hauschka, BJ Nilsen, and Cristian Vogel.

MEN-02 ROTHKO CHAPEL DE MENIL, Francois; MICHAELS, Jerry 2011 Francois de Menil, a son of Dominique and John de Menil, filmed key moments of the Chapels early years, including interviews with his parents.  The filming was completed in 1972 but was just recently digitized by filmmakers de Menil and Jerry Michaels.  Along with interviews with the senior de Menils about their decision to commission the painter Mark Rothko in 1964, and the spiritual goals of the building, the film captures the interfaith commitment of the Chapel through three religious ceremonies in the Chapel: a Catholic service, a Presbyterian Lenten service, and an Islamic prayer.  The film also shows rare archival footage of Mrs. de Menil dedicating the Chapel to the people of Houston in 1971 and captures the contemplative nature of the space with slow shots of the interior and of visitors experiencing the art and architecture.  The film will be shown on the Chapel's plaza and will be followed by a question and answer session with the filmmaker.
 
Francois de Menil is the son of John and Dominique de Menil.   He is a filmmaker and, since 1987, an architect, known for his award winning designs including the Byzantine Fresco Chapel Museum.
 
The Rothko chapel is an internationally renowned intimate sanctuary formed around 14 monumental canvases by Mark Rothko.  It is an interfaith space conceived and made possible by Houston philanthropists Dominique and John de Menil, and a timeless landmark that was blessed by an international roster of religious dignitaries when it opened in 1971.

DOY-01 50,000 BEDS DOYLE, Chris 2007 50,000 Beds was commissioned by three of Connecticut's premier contemporary art exhibition spaces: The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum (Ridgefield), Artspace (New Haven), and Real Art Ways (Hartford).
The project was intended as an exploration of the interdependent roles of art and tourism. It was a collaboration with the three presenting organizations, the artists, and the hotel/business community. Forty-five artists/teams were invited to create short videos, each set in a different hotel, motel, or inn across Connecticut. The videos were then grouped and installed, fifteen at each venue.

POP-08 KALEIDOSCOPE SCHOOL PROJECT 2011 POPCORN KIDS 2011 In partnership with Writers In the Schools, Aurora Picture Show's Media Arts Instructor Camilo Gonzalez worked with students and teachers to create short films from poems written by youth in their WITS program. The students had been working with Sara Cooper to create poems inspired by the book, "The House on Mango Street," a coming-of-age novel by Mexican-American writer Sandra Cisneros. Camilo was brought in to collaborate on creating stop-motion animation films from these poems. Paired into groups, each student used a line from one of their poems. We are very proud to present this final product which was the result of much time spent with the students, the teachers of Kaleidoscope and our partners at Writers in the Schools.

APS-94 I CAN DO ANYTHING AURORA PICTURE SHOW CURATED BY SARA GISH 2012
The following films are included in this program:
 
Now U See Me, Now U Don't!, Maureen McNamara Now u see me, now u don't! Look what i can do when noone's judging, noone's "watching", or when i decide to show my uninhibited self anyway.. Love Bug, 6 minutes, Kat Candler
In this humorous short film, nine-year old Turtle Thompson thinks his bug loving best friend Maddy is the coolest girl in the whole wide world- if only he had the guts to ask her to the Spring Fling Dance. A film by Austin-based filmmaker Kat Candler whose award winning short and feature films have screened at renowned film festivals including SXSW, Slamdance, Tribeca's Kid's Series and Chicago International Children's Film Festival. Candler is a film Lecturer at the University of Texas and Texas State University.
 
Growing Dreams, 20 minutes, Jane Churchill and Gwynne Basen
Growing Dreams gives an inspirational overview of school ground greening. It shows what kids have done to transform bare pavement into dream schoolyards: growing trees for shade, flowers for butterflies, vegetables for a food bank; building a greenhouse, a rooftop garden and constructing a courtyard pond as an outdoor classroom and refuge for wildlife.
 
Marvin, 8 minutes, Mark Nute
"Marvin was born with a hole in his head, He wasn't born stupid, he wasn't born dead." Mark Nute's "Marvin," a delightful story of a kid who loses his common sense through a hole in his head, plays like a perverse children's book, and with Steve Coogan's deadpan narration, the surprises keep on coming. The animation perfectly services the clever story, and the music by Jeff Mercel, along with the imaginative sound design, make for a funny and odd cartoon. I'd love to see this with a theatrical audience.
 
Matthew Doing Weather, 30 seconds, Matthew Buchannen
Matthew Buchanan visits the Weather Museum in Houston.
 
I Can Make Art...Like Emily Carr, 10 minutes, Jane Churchill
This short film is part of a series entitled "I Can Make Art" and focuses on the work of Emily Carr. In this film, kids examine Carr's unusual world and the inspiration for her haunting landscapes. Drawing on this inspiration, they then attempt to create a giant forest mural on a window in their school. The series is comprised of six short films that take a kid's-eye view of a diverse group of Canadian visual artists.
 
         Roberto, The Insect Architect, 11min, Nina Laden
Roberto isn't like the other termites - he likes to build with wood, not eat it. And so, he sets off for the big city to pursue his dream of becoming an architect.
Live Oak Trees is a music video of the title track from the album "Our Roots are Strong," a cd co-produced by Sarah Gish and musician Leah White in honor of Houston's 175th birthday in 2011. Appearances in the film include Mayor Parker, Dominique Sachsen, Deborah Duncan, Ned Hubbard and Houston Texan football players. SugarHill Studios and Zenfilm created the film with fiscal support from Southwest Alternate Media Project.

Films by PES

Fresh Guacamole, 1:40
Fresh Guacamole is an innovative stop-motion animation, based purely on the idea of using common household objects to make guacamole. Fresh Guacamole is a very unique film, because it has no characters (except for an anonymous set of hands belonged to PES), and at one minute 46 seconds, is the shortest film ever to be nominated for an Oscar!



Game Over, 1:36
This short is sure to elicit some nostalgic delight in anyone familiar with the old arcade games of the 1970s and 80s including Frogger and Space Invaders. In Game Over, PES has recreated these iconic games using ordinary household items through the process of stop-motion animation. In displaying Pac-Man, for example, all the characters are created using food items (pizza, eggs, etc.).
The Deep, 1:33
For as long as I can remember I've been obsessed with deep sea creatures. And certain tools have always reminded me of fish and other ocean creatures. One tool in particular ± an old nutcracker ± looked very fish-head-like to me (I used it as the head of the eel and the lantern fish in The Deep). So I collected lots of tools and metal scraps over the past 5 years with an eye toward creating an undersea-themed piece. The challenge became, can I get these rigid objects to have enough fluidity to really make them believable as sea creatures.


KaBoom!, 1:05
