The Ghost and the Video

Short underground videos. In Ryan Kortman's Disgeyser a static shot of a pastoral river repeatedly erupts with explosions while a man screams maniacally off camera, a commentary perhaps on our abuse of nature. Kayleen's On the Brink is an amusing send-up of treacly TV commercials: singing an insipid ditty as they leave grandma and grandpa's house, a nuclear family is freeze-framed, and their images morph into different shapes and colors. Ann Marie Lanesey's Getting Off is a clever variation on comic burlesque, as a supine woman, visible from the crotch down, pulls off one pair of stockings after another in tight close-up, accentuating the viewer's voyeuristic complicity. The program, scheduled to run 90 minutes, also includes work by Tara Mateik, Erik Luken, Diana Joy Parker, K8 Hardy and Wayne Greenwood, and Tumblecat with Team Fagtastic Team Fabtastic.
