Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival 2003, program six

A mixed bag of 11 films and videos. Joanna Griffin's Feathered Water (2002) shows submarines that look like sea monsters. Rephotographed footage of the twin towers in Eva Teppe's untitled memorial (2002) is only mildly affecting. In Calcutta Intersection (2003) Alfred Guzzetti creates a variety of associations by pairing a sound track of news reports with the doings on an ordinary street. Two of the videos are terrific: Luis Recoder's Splinters (2003) deploys dotted lines against a dark background to produce a seductive field full of depth, and Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay's I Am a Boyband (2002) is a clever cultural commentary in which Ramsay plays four singers performing an updated arrangement of a song by Elizabethan composer John Dowland—a welcome musical trend if it catches on. 91 min.
