Award winning filmmaker, media activist, and founding member of Paper Tiger Television and Deep Dish TV, DeeDee Halleck will present three programs from the SHOCKING AND AWFUL series.

Tonight’s screening will include THE WORLD SAYS NO TO WAR, which documents the massive protests of tens of millions of people throughout the world in opposition to the U.S. invasion of Iraq; ERASING MEMORY, which describes the cultural destruction of Iraq during the war and occupation by the US in the past two years; THE ART OF RESISTANCE, which presents the growing impact of artists and cultural performances that have invigorated and enlivened resistance to America’s imperial war on Iraq; as well as footage of resistance to this year’s Republican National Convention.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
