Secrets for Sale AND A Certain Liberation

Elodie Pong's Secrets for Sale (2003, 64 min., in French with subtitles) documents her installation at a Zurich art museum, in which visitors to a sterile white room are offered the chance to disguise themselves and disclose a secret to a video camera. In A Certain Liberation (2003, 37 min., in English and subtitled Bengali), Bangladeshi filmmaker Yasmine Kabir hurries through a bazaar, chasing a limber widow who swats passersby with a stick and yanks cash from their pockets. As Kabir fills in her traumatic past during the 1971 war of liberation from Pakistan, she seems less a nuisance than a mascot for her community.
