  The Joy of Life. 2005. USA. Directed by Jenni Olson. The landscape is
  San Francisco. Light shifts across its hills and the Golden Gate Bridge.
  The voice-over, by Harriet "Harry" Dodge, tells two heart-wrenching
  stories: the history of the Bridge as a mecca for suicides, and the
  search for love by a young woman seeking another woman. Lawrence
  Ferlinghetti reads his ode to San Francisco, "The Changing Light," and
  the opening and closing music is by poet and presumed Golden Gate
  suicide victim Weldon Kees. Organized by Laurence Kardish, Senior
  Curator, Department of Film. Courtesy Strand Releasing and Frameline. 65

  min.-2005), STEREOSCOPIC EXPERIMENT FOR AUDIENCE No. 1 (8 min.-2006),
  min.-2006), WAR-HEADS (15 min.-1993) 16mm film, Robert Flowers, based in
  Dallas, Texas, brings with him a collection of elegant, mostly abstract,
  digital video works and a 16mm film. "The effects of our
  industrial/digital age are examined in Robert Daniel Flowers' quietly
  poetic 110303 in which repeated machinelike shapes and superimposed
  moving rectangles recall modern buildings and the monotony of the
  assembly line."- Fred Camper. "A symphony of data, computations, and
  architecture at the micro level; where circle and line form grids which
  collide, overlap, intersect, and co-exist."- R.F. On WAR-HEADS- "Created
  as a reaction against the original Gulf War, WAR-HEADS' macabre
  connotations are perhaps more valid today than a decade ago. It is a
  dark, militaristic satire (that isn't funny) structured in four ordered
  parts of equal value: Commercial, Stealth, Funeral and Ritual (Dance)."-

  Scuzzy seats and sticky floors might always have a place on 42nd Street,
  but the porn cinemas are gone forever—and at a cost that could not be
  calculated in property values. According to Samuel R. Delany, the Runyon
  of the red-light district, New York's porn theaters were "not at all
  [romantic]. But because of the people who used them, they were humane
  and functional, fulfilling needs that most of our society does not yet

  playing out and around with different forms of maleness, ending with a
  happy couple by the sea. It's porno made art through the glances of a
  loving man – or is it a reality of love that can be found in porno if
  one looks with care – or a remembrance of realities past, of times more
  willing to indulge in ambiguities? It's all of it at once, as it always
  is with Jones. The Naked-Boy Business, part 1 Andre Hereford, 2006,
  video, color, sound, 7 min, World Premiere A tongue-in-cheek take on
  straight boys' attitudes about the sexualized male body, using

  and video shot by naked-boy legend Peter Berlin.

  Muholi, 2005, South Africa, color, sound, 14 min. A Photographer, Muholi
  is celebrating her exhibition in Johannesburg. Efficiently
  confrontational, the exhibition causes a stir and provokes an outcry on
  a subject that is particularly taboo: being black, and, in this case,
  being lesbian. Forthright and beautifully shot, each monochrome photo
  captures the present reality of the photographer's subjects - the daily
  discomfort, double lives, abuse and hatred. The photographs present a

  This is our recognition of all things un-see-able. Is it in your mind,
  in your blood? Is it your dream or deep evil? Is it your grandma or your
  hero's unfinished last work? You paint wide with your camera and think
  big. The point is that it doesn't have to be new. Does it make sense? Or
  state the absence of it? –LTTR, Guest Curators. Marble Mouth Au Revoir

  1974 the filmaker's mother left Moscow for sunny California where she
  died soon afterwards, leaving scant primary documents. A tape of her
  interview with a Soviet director, the conjurings of a grandmother, and
  the Esparantist cousin from Odessa at his most spectral, are fragments
  from this story. The neutral intermediaries of monuments and other
  statuary, ex lovers and other people's grandparents gallantly fill the
  gaps. Spektro De'l Tempo is cartography rendered in flypaper, memory
  held in the sweet glue of revisionist history, and a nod to families
  real and invented. Who Do You Think You Are Lovett/Codagnone, 1997, USA,

  Greta Snider circles back to our gallery with a compelling new mode of
  documentary: Stereoscopic portraits of individuals talking intimately
  about their own bodies. In collaboration with Johunna Grayson, these
  revealing personal profiles invite us into an unprecedented encounter
  with private choices about gender, sexuality, and modification, guided
  by the subjects' own voices. ALSO on the program is the live-cinema
  performance of Lee Krist, hand-cranking his hand-processed 16mm motion
  pictures, towards an enhanced sensuality of the photochemical craft. The
  evening opens with an expansive survey of Snider's experimental
  landscape slides, DIY-developed through an exquisite aesthetic of
  alchemical poetry.

  amnesia stricken suburban housewife wanders into an underground punk
  club and discovers a new way of life. Sensing the World by Echo Mark
  Taylor, 2006, USA, video, color, sound, 18 min. New York Premiere
  Sensing the World by Echo is a "Frankenstein's monster" of a movie
  stitched together with parts robbed from the B-movie graveyard of horror
  and sci-fi films. A colorful, animated paper collage, the film is
  assembled from scraps of 1950s and '60s children's books, home and

  Swallowing Butch (The Haunting, 1963) Douglas Green, 2005, video, color,
  sound, 4 min. New York Premiere Douglas Green is literally haunting the
  1963 horror movie The Haunting by inserting one single frame of original
  video into a small clip from the film. This hidden frame is made more
  visible as the speed of the clip is repeatedly slowed to expand time,
  opening up a close reading that queers the representation of lesbian
  desire and the supernatural that the original film imagines. The Process
  David Kagan, 2004, USA, video, B&W, sound, 20 min. The Process is a film
  about the intricate, private worlds human beings create amid surrounding
  chaos. It asks the question: do we do this to keep our sanity, or is it
  a dangerous departure from reality? The Process tells of one man's
  struggle for human contact. The nameless hero lives as a recluse,
  terrified of the world beyond his door. The man fears his anxiety will
  forever lock him away from the company of humans. The man's "fairy
  godmother" arrives in the form of a black crow. The specter communicates
  a process by which the hero will be able to construct a lover. Coif
  Melanie McGraw, 2004, USA, video, B&W, sound, 6 min. When Caroline is a
  little girl she discovers static electricity and has the bright idea of
  using it to give her hair a little 'lift.' But Caroline's family insists
  on controlled, sprayed, perfectly coifed hair. Her mother let's her know
  that 'wild hair' is not acceptable by coifing Caroline's hair. Now at 17
  years old with the same ridiculously coifed hair, Caroline dreams of
  having flowing hair like the long-haired lovelies that she sees around

  Premiere After detaining immigrants, silencing journalists, and
  demonizing intellectuals, the leaders of the New America decide that
  they need a New Enemy to distract the restless citizenry...THE QUEERS!
  When the new leaders discover that most Americans are willing to deny
  human rights to sexual minorities, the government whips the nation into
  a frenzy of hatred towards gays and transsexuals-- a frenzy that
  culminates in the mass extermination of THE GAY MENACE! Yet the new
  leaders make one fatal mistake: after rounding up the majority of
  American gay males, they assume that queer females will surrender
  without a fight. But the New Government quickly comes to realize that
  even the U.S. Army is no match for the loveable wacky militant dykes and
  trannies rising up from the depths of the Homosexual Underground.
