  • A/K/A MRS. GEORGE GILBERT (USA, 2004, 31 min.)
    Directed by Coco Fusco
    This hybrid video blends fictional and documentary source material in an imaginative re-creation of a crucial political moment in U.S. history. Co-scripted by Rick Moody (THE ICE STORM), it tells the story of an FBI agent who confesses to his involvement in the nationwide search for Angela Davis, the famous radical philosopher and black activist who was on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list in 1970 and an underground fugitive for two months.
  • IT'S NOT MY MEMORY OF IT: 3 RECOLLECTED DOCUMENTS (USA, 2003, 25 min.)
    Directed by Julia Meltzer & David Thorne
    IT'S NOT MY MEMORY OF IT is a documentary about secrecy, memory, and documents. Mobilizing specific historical records as memories that flash up in moments of danger, the tape addresses the expansion and intensification of secrecy practices in the current climate of heightened security.
  • DEVOTION (USA, 2004, 34 mins.)
    Directed by Cynthia Madansky, who will attend the screening
    DEVOTION is a meditation on nationalism and Islam shot in Istanbul and woven through with a story of love and loss.

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.
