Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival 2003, program two

Christopher Keller's 30-minute video Retrograd is an exploitative compilation of disturbing images culled from the film archive of a Berlin hospital—eyeballs pierced by arrows, a brain-damaged boy hopping on one leg, homosexual rats humping-intercut with irrelevant interviews with hospital staff. In his overlong Be True to Your School, Patrick Grossi plays records and holds a succession of paperbacks up to the camera for 17 minutes. Shelly Silver's 3-minute video 1 is short, sharp provocation featuring split-screen slow-motion close-ups of toothy young NYC cops overlaid with a text warning us of the devouring nature of the world. Mark Boswell's video Agent Orange is a similarly terse and paranoid take on authority figures. Plus work by Denise Kaufmann, Jeanne Liotta, Seoungho Cho, Carolyn Faber, Nicholas Provost, and Michael Robinson. 96 min.
