Reconstructions of adventures in Moscow's gay sub-culture are cut with lurid Rock Hudson headlines and scenes from his cold war classic Ice Station Zebra. A tape about the impossibility of escaping East/West redundancies, travelling, shaping a gay identity and politics from the contradictory fragments of homophobic culture.Moving Image1446

Narratively speaking, a homosexual writer visualises his fantasies and a collective joins what seems to be the story of an encounter between two men. Moving Image1455
Wild LifeJohn Goss198500:39:30Erika SuderburgA video portrait of two 15 year-old gay Latinos. The piece combines documentary-style interviews with fictional segments in which the young men act out their fantasized day in Los Angeles. As they talk about their lives, we see scenes of them changing into wild-style clothes on the street, cruising around Gay City, meeting their friends in the park, and throwing attitude. They are questioned about the nature of being gay, relationships with friends and lovers, style and image, and their use of gay language. As the tape progresses, the positions of fact and fiction overlap, highlighting the contradictions in their stories and in the video's method of constructing these stories."Special Thanks to: Lauren Zuckerman, Patrice Cammack, Garth Spruiell, Ed Heckerman, Robert Hori, John Dorr, Eztv"Moving Image1468

Holy Joe is a fast paced collage that dislocates our pre-described fetishistic response to religion, ritual and vice. This tape also challenges the seduction of consumerism and the media's manipulation of the politics of sexual preference and class i.d. Carefully deconstructed to tackle each issue in a different way through dramatized scenes, interviews, staged poses; Sarahan's production never takes the easy way out.The Canada Council ; Western Front Video"Thanks to Kris Bergthorson, Shelley Kean, M + D, Charles Rea, John Anderson, Walter Gulezko.

"Out" TakesJohn Goss198900:13:00Robert HoriGay sensibility, homophobia and gender roles on broadcast television are outlined by juxtaposing scenes from two children's shows: Pee Wee's Playhouse and Maido Osawaga Seshimasu (We're Always Making Trouble), a prime-time sitcom from Japan. Rex Reed's outrageous critique of Pee Wee (Paul Ruebens) highlights the self-perpetuating closet of Hollywood and the perceived threat of the show's gay subtexts. Reed's opposition to Pee-Wee, and Reuben's technique of innuendo, double-entendre, and gender-switching, both appear equally repressed compared to the explicit frankness of the Japanese series.Moving Image1614
The World is Sick (Sic)John Greyson198900:38:00An eccentric documentation of the activist interventions at the 5th International Conference on AIDS in Montreal, 1989.

Tainted: Christopher Lefler and the Queer Censorship ChillMaureen Bradley199600:28:00Christopher Lefler ; Sylvia FedorukIn a 1993 art exhibit at the University of Saskatchewan, Christopher Lefler created an installation essentially outing the Lieutenant Governor of that province. As a result, Lefler's show was closed, his artwork seized, his scholarship revoked, and he was expelled. TAINTED is not, however, about outing. It attempts instead to chart and comment upon some of the reactions to Lefler's controversial and much maligned work. TAINTED attempts to raise the questions of power, privilege, and privacy that have been foreclosed in the aftermath of these events."Produced at Video In Studios Vancouver Canada for EXPLICIT: sex.sin.silicon; very special thanks to Ken Anderlini; thanks also to Laurel Swenson, kevin d*souza, Anne Marie McInnis, Wendy Coburn, Seanna McPherson Evin Jones, Alix Mathias; and the support of kevin d*souza, Ralph Wushke, Cynthia Ward, Elizabeth MacKenzie, Joanne Bristol, Joan Borsa and so many others."Moving Image2219

What I RememberMaureen Bradley199800:06:00Brae MacFarlane-Swenson ; Maija MartinGirl World ProductionsWhat I remember is a melancholy recollection of two stories of first love. The narrator relates two anecdotes from her youth, seemingly unrelated, but linked by both their sweetness and tragedy. What does she remember about first love? Akwardness, embarassment, secrecy, and abandon. The moral of the story? Once you fall hard, you better duck.
The visual track, hand processed and manipulated to create a feeling of longing and remembering, explores a childhood compulsion and sadism which foreshadows the tragic conclusion to the story-murder, and the impossibility of true love.

Go Dyke! GoMaureen Bradley199800:10:00Go Dyke! Go! is a humorous commentary on lesbian relationships in the context of children's literature. Taking off from the popular children's book Go Dog! Go! (by P.D. Eastman), this animation paints a sarcastic, pointed and comic picture of queer life in the 90s. Familiar pop imagery and everyday signifiers are a point of entry for a discussion of the patterns of serial monogamy and lesbian representation. Go Dyke! Go! plays with the genre of animation and poses a game of semiotics to deconstruct the tropes of children's books and heterosexism.Moving Image2300

CrimsonGino T. ; Byung K.200000:04:00Clover P. ; Izzi P.This tape portrays the feeling of sadness when one loses an exciting, idolized friend and an object of love through a change in gender: when a femme fag crush transitions into a butch dyke. The pirate here represents a figure of freedom, adventure, outlaw, and difference, inspiring feelings of awe and fear, identification and desire. The pirate in the bathtub is trashy glamour ("bathing beauty") and reflects a sense of play.

The trendy, academic discourse about the fluidity of gender, sexuality, and performance is here questioned and made more complicated.

The CallingNguyen Tan Hoang ; Dredge Byung'chu Kang200000:08:00Trung Pham ; Gino T. ; Sam ChuangKimchi Chige ProductionsThe dream of every Catholic mother is for her son to dedicate his life to the Church, i.e. to receive the Calling and become a priest. After having four daughters, my mother made a pact with the Virgin Mary that, if granted a son, she would give him up to God, and that was how I came to be and what I was destined to become.
Employing a collage of evocative film clips from classic priest movies such as "The Thorn Birds," "The Exorcist," "Diary of a Country Priest," and "I Confess," I filter the "sacrifice" of my mother through the experiences of these cinematic men of the cloth, entangled in the apron strings of their own mothers. These priests all suffer from the classic symptom of Catholicism: a guilty conscience, enacted through secrecy, hiding, and Satanic possession, which are also alleged symptoms of another malady: homosexuality.

The provocative styles of Persimmon Blackbridge, Lizard Jones and Susan Stewart come together in simple lust stories and in letters to their mothers.

This experimental video is structured as a composite timeline of sixty dates and places, starting in 1841 and ending in 2001. In this chronology, significant dates in Ma's personal and family history mingle and intersect with world historical events, showing the larger social and political forces behind his migrations. Ma's life experiences are contextualized by events including the Prodemocracy demonstrations in China; AIDS activism in the U.S.; the Asian American, Gay Liberation, and Civil Rights Movements of the 1960s and '70s. Archival images of these marches and demonstrations are combined with footage Ma shot during his travels in China, Europe, and the U.S. These fluctuations in time and space recreate an uncanny sensation, most often experienced while traveling, when the past, present, and future all seemed visible in the same instant.Pitzer College Faculty Start-Up Grant"Additional thanks to: Alex Juhasz, Katherine Lambert, Jesse Lerner, Meena Nanji, Shannon Noble, Christiane Robbins, Karen Schwenkmeyer, Tran T.

Hom ; Cheryl Dunye ; Simone Dunye ; Alexandra JuhaszT.O.F.U ProductionsMother/Land, the second in Ma’s Xin Lu project, is a meditation on the separations and departures that have shaped the maker's identity, his family, the city of Hong Kong where he grew up, and the Chinese Diaspora in which he now wanders. This experimental video takes off from a series of interviews Ma conducted with his mother before and after her departure from Hong Kong in 1996. Her reflections on leaving the city that she has called home for over sixty years, and her subsequent adjustment to living in London forms the main narrative in the video.

Mother/Land portrays both the demise and dispersal of a traditional, heterosexual, Chinese family, and the formation of new diasporic relationships that are queer, trans-national, but no less Chinese.

[os]Ming-Yuen S. Ma200701:00:00The fourth and final video in Ma's Xin Lu project, [os] excavates the personal and the collective, the colonial and the transnational, the traumatic, the wistful, the queer, and the spectral to tell intersecting stories about our desires to return to the past. Its title represents the etymological ‘ghost’ that haunts the creation of the word ‘nostalgia’, which combines the Greek word nostos (return home) and New Latin algia (akin to Greek neisthai to return).
The video unfolds with a series of stories collected from a group of exiled Chinese gay men. In it, Ma travels to the United Kingdom, Canada, and throughout the United States to search for men from his generation, and who, like him, grew-up in Hong Kong but are now living abroad. When he finds them, he asks each of them to tell him a story about their memory of growing up in Hong Kong.
In its disparate recalling lost times and places, [os] traces transitory states of being that are shared by both exiles and ghosts. These connections, like the experience of haunting, are ethereal and ungraspable—yet uncannily powerful. In [os], the ghosts of memory are given a “reality check” by actual ghosts, who turn out to be just as elusive, disappearing around the corner before they can be captured by the camera.

Cotton Candy Insulation Keeps You Warm and Cuts Like GlassElizabeth Milton201300:18:12Cotton Candy Insulation Keeps You Warm and Cuts Like Glass was a performance and installation work that revolved around inviting a series of participants into the gallery space (during close hours) to enact choreographed “breakdown” in front of the camera. The procession of participants (which included; artist’s mother, a drag performer, an opera singer and a series of amateur performers) were directed to break a series of prop glass objects that ornamental the predominantly pink set. Traditionally made sugar in the theater and film industry, these sugar-glass “crystal” tumblers were hurled against a prop wall and stomped into gallery floor in a series of attempted emotional crescendos that pulled from the gestural language of Hollywood musicals, punk rock and operatic hysteria. Milton returned to the gallery side each morning after a performance, collected the shards of candy glass, spun them into a cotton candy and in turn, used this temporarily fluffy pink material to insulate the wall of the set. The residue of this transformation of material accumulated within the gallery, culminating in a screening of the performances during the last week of the exhibition. Throughout this work, Milton aimed to investigate notions of the performativity of objects, the spectacularization of emotion and the connection between material and psychic rupture.Moving Image4612

Vanité des nationsAlejandro Šajgalík201600:04:40Nick BostickIn a day and age of instant digital gratification, can an obsolete gay cruising ground be retrieved as a pre-Internet haven? Here, are we able to drop all mirrors of self-contemplation? What happens when an unchoreographed dance starts to attract voyeurs at the Expo grounds? What is the relationship between voyeurism and exhibitionism in the ever constant potentiality of one's online presence?

While this cruising happenstance unfolded by the Place des Nations that has been left to rot since Expo 67, the city is still pondering over the fate of the white elephant: the square where 50 years ago, world leaders from across the globe gathered to perform national pride for a day. For an expensive quickie, what is a nation if not pure vanity?

Dubbed the delta between the blocks, the gaping hole has been freed from society’s ties for over 25 years. Amongst cruisers, Gypsies and shepherds, he divests earthly goods and ideas, in an attempt to unravel the inner workings of utopian desire. Meanwhile, an official decree designates the void as a National Park to clear the anomaly. In response to the city regaining control over the lawless territory, can poetic acts become the seedling to a new morality?Institutul Cultural Român."Very special thanks to Gruia Bădescu, Romelia Călin, Cătălina Ioniță, Dan Bărbulescu, Danae Haratsis, Eduardo Sajgalik, Jonathan Lapalme, Gică, the sheperd, the cruisers."Moving Image4635

What's It Like?Pablo Griff201100:01:44Clark Nikolai ; Stephan ElliottA telling conversation between a father and a son.

What's It Like? is one of a series of films involving the use of scenes taken from existing films. Using the low quality of the Pixelvision camera as to not take away from the dialogue. The Fisher-Price Pixelvision is a late 1980's camera that records on to an audio tape.
The film's crude image quality, cuts and acting hopefully make one focus on the dialogue. The scenes are chosen for the emotional connection Pablo Griff has with each original scene.

look_im_aznNguyen Tan Hoang201200:05:35The video explores gay Asian men's (GAMs) cruising strategies on American gay sex hookup websites. In environments deemed open and accessible, affording new sexual freedoms, GAMs often encounter such pronouncements as "No fats, no femmes, no Asians," that is, caveats that severely constrain their cyber-cruising opportunities. The video draws on two sets of GAMs' cruising strategies in the face of such rejection: the headless torso pics as a way of "tactical masking" their GAM-ness and the use of screen names that proudly assert their Asianness ("GAM" and "AZN") and those that exploit shameful racial slurs ("chink" and "gook"). This silent video combs online sex cruising grounds for articulations of gay Asian men's desires and demands.

Connecting the personal, the social, the historical, the medical, the erotical, and the abject to the repetition of the action of introducing corks into the artist's rectum. This performance invokes a memory of a homophobic remark spoken to the artist when he was a child: “If you are going to sleep in the same bed, you better put a cork up your ass.” The work additionally invokes memories relate to childhood sexual explorations, homophobia, and the construction of the artist's own gender identity.Moving Image5316
IntersectionsEmilio Rojas201300:23:00This collaborative Film explores issues of racism and homophobia through a surreal narrative film structured through metaphors and vignettes where the roles are played by people from queer and racialized communities in North Carolina. The film interconnects both the civil rights movement and current queer issues through the writings, love letters,interviews and speeches of the lost prophet, Bayard Rustin. Some of the topics include the history of segregation, the Woolworth Sit-Ins , the Jim Crow laws, The Greensboro Four, Amendment 1, and the repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell law. This is the result of a residency by Emilio Rojas and Jeremy Harris at Elsewhere Museum, in Greensboro, North Carolina that attempted to collectively generate a creative space for reflecting on these vital issues.Moving Image5317

The Villain looks back at his childhood, the day he discovers that the image others have of him does not match the one he has himself. This awareness causes a total transformation of personality. The film experiments with the themes of ambition, identity, society's pressure, gender stereotypes and the obsession to control one's self-image. The story told is also a nightmarish analogy for the transition from childhood to adulthood."Special thanks to: Andre Bader, Etienne Revault, Alex Simon, Laura Woody, Marianne Katser, Phyllis Murtle, Shermen Shirawi, Thomas Portier.

Four video monitors display tape loops of public and private episodes of heterosexism and racism, while a duet by two male dancers sutures together interviews on fag bashing, gay domestic violence, racist attack, and moments in the colonization of British Columbia. In an epic, polyphonic narrative, this installation makes important parallels between race, queer identity, and the construction of masculinity, wherein violence secures the identity of the masculine self.Moving Image
