Retrospective Program 4: Selected by Amy Beste

Bouncing in the Corner, #36DDD
Dara Greenwald
Video, 3 min., 1999, USA

“A late-90s feminist looks back on the seminal work of Bruce Nauman. A take off on Bouncing in the Corner where everything is taken off.” (DG)

The Devil Lives in Hollywood
Amy Lockhart
16mm, 6 min., 2001, Canada

“An animated dissection of our excuses and excesses, and it's sad too. And funny. So sing along!” (AL)

Jennet Thomas
Video, 10 min., 2000, UK

“This is the story of two young girls who dig up a tiny woman from the back garden. They incubate her in their mouths, in their bed, they lock her in a dolls house wallpapered with pornography to make her grow up faster, feeding her through a tube in the door. When she is life-sized and ready to play they take her to the disco. A dark, comic, experimental fantasy on the implications of Little Girls Toys - with the existential melancholy of Frankenstein's monster." (JT)

Getting Stronger Every Day
Miranda July
Video, 7 min., 2001, USA

“This one is about being lost and found, from moment to moment, and over the course of a lifetime. The spirit realm manifests in lo-tech effects and remembered TV movies. Starring Richard Greiling, Carrie Brownstein, and Mia Cianciulli.” (MJ)

Letters, Notes
Stephanie Barber
16mm, 3 min., 2000, USA

“A simple but stunning film in which mini-narratives are created using mostly found photographs and letters.” - Patrick Friel

Then a Year
Kelly Reichardt
Super-8 on Video, 14 min., 2002, USA

"...a voice-over collaged from true crime shows and Super-8 picture that's essential Reichardt: lyrical, ominous, and evocative of how horribly love can hurt." - Amy Taubin, Village Voice

Vanessa O'Neill
16mm, 13 min., 2001, USA

“Ambient soundscapes and lush colors limn the boundary between noise and its absence.” (VO)

The Lester Film
Heather McAdams & Chris Ligon
16mm, 15 min., 2000, USA

“The Lester Film introduces us to artist/cross dresser Lester/Letuska and demonstrates McAdams’ understanding of and sensitivity for outsiders and people living on the margins (without losing an eye for the humorous and ridiculous).” - Cine-File

It Will Die Out in the Mind
Deborah Stratman
Video, 4 min., 2007, USA

“A short meditation on the possibility of spiritual existence and the paranormal in our information age.” (DS)
"Time isn't a thing, it's an idea. It will die out in the mind." - Fyodor Dostoyevsky
