FASCINATING

FASCINATING
Directed by Amanda Taylor
This comedy demystifies lesbians and Star Trek, while commenting on "news" shows like Hard Copy and A Current Affair. In pointing out the power of television and its effects on viewers, Taylor addresses the void of lesbian visibility on television. 1998, U.S., video, 9 minutes.


24 GIRLS

24 GIRLS
Directed by Eva Ilona Brzeski
A meditation on girlhood, 24 Girls examines the potential and mystery inherent in everyday life. While auditioning 24 young girls for another film, Brzeski was reminded of a childhood friend who died in fourth grade. She combines footage of the auditions with an impressionistic essay inspired by memories of her friend, fusing documentary, narrative, and experimental elements. 1998, U.S., 16mm, 29 minutes.


DRIFTER

DRIFTER
Directed by Lisa Smieja
A young woman leaves her home in the rural Midwest with only a backpack and a jar full of glass beads, then hitches all over the United States. As she attempts to find herself and escape the tragedy in her life, she learns more about life's darker side and finds the strength to confront her past. 1998, U.S., 16mm, 13 minutes.


COTTONWOOD
Directed by Deborah Hardt
In this short tale, a father stumbles home from the bar and announces to his family that a tornado is coming. As they prepare to head out in search of the storm, the siblings expose their different perspectives about their father's hallucinations. 1997, U.S., video, 9 minutes.

airing dirty laundry
Directed by Lu Lippold
Lippold explores domestic violence through conversations with survivors who are participating in a collaborative art project with the Bloomington Art Center and Twin Cities domestic abuse centers. 1998, U.S., video, 10 minutes.

AND THEN THERE WAS FAMILY
Directed by Marti Lufkin
When her grandmother died, Lufkin was compelled to poke at the demons of her father's family. She discovered, through this experimental film, that life is not always what it appears to be. 1998, U.S., video, 5 minutes.

sHe hEr heR
Directed by Tomoko Oguchi
Centered around the world of dating and new relationships, Oguchi reveals a secret side of women: what makes them late for dates and what they might be doing before they go out. 1998, U.S., 16mm, 3 minutes.

BARBIE NOIRE
Directed by Claire Simonson
This narrative film brings to light another side of Barbie--the doll that represents a dream of sophistication for almost every girl who grew up in America since the late 1950s. Barbie Noire invokes a hard-boiled film noir style, where seduction and violence were just two sides of the coin. Simonson's film contributes to the Barbie myth, taking a nostalgic look back at a "classy dame." 1997, U.S., video, 11 minutes.
