Smalltown Boys and Girls

None of these seven films and videos is an unqualified success, and several lapse into student-film cliche, such as Sean U'ren's Light of Other Days (2002), in which the filmmaker recounts his life story in a voice-over to family home movies, or Stephanie Gray's Kristy, which addresses celebrity worship via repeated TV images of Kristy McNichol's face. Much better are Zack Stiglicz's meditation on eros and death, Posthumously Yours, in which writhing superimpositions of male faces and bodies are juxtaposed with intimations of a final farewell with poignant effect, and Clive Holden's 18,000 Dead in Gordon Head, a meditation on violence filmed on a stretch of road where a girl was felled by a sniper, filmed from the vantage point of the victim. 80 min.
