The war in question goes unnamed, but each of these five shorts of varying quality has a bone to pick with the status quo. Best of the lot is Deborah Stratman’s creepy In Order Not to Be Here (2001), which draws on surveillance camera footage and infrared video to explore the modern obsession with high-tech security and delineate the threat it poses to civil liberties. Rachel Rinaldo’s video Division + Western (2002) draws simplistic parallels between the gentrification of Wicker Park and Humboldt Park and the American colonization of Puerto Rico. Also on the program: videos by Sedika Mojadidi, Hrafnhildur-Hrabba Gunnarsdottir, Carol Jacobsen, and Meredith Holch. 99 min.
