Truths of Consequence
Program 6, A Sense of Site:
From Calcutta to Afghanistan toTeheran
Four eclectic videos explore what is typically thought of as non-place, whether urban intersections, bombing sites, or public bathrooms. Nevertheless, these are sites where things happen, the kind of things we donít usually discuss. Dominic Angerame's
Anaconda Targets appropriates aerial video of a bombing run in Afghanistan while soldiers' voices reveal a horrifying callousness towards their "targets." Alfred Guzzetti's Calcutta Intersection
finds suspense in his single-take observation of life on the run.
Pierre-Yves Clouin discovers a new use for airplanes in Flying Sculpture. Finally, Mahnaz Afzali's hour-long documentary
The Ladies Room explores the lives of several marginalized women whose paths cross in the public bathroom of a Teheran park. curated by Irina Leimbacher
