This densely packed program of eight experimental videos focuses on national affairs, particularly the 9/11 attacks and the invasion of Iraq, and it’s more varied and less preachy than one might expect. The formal approaches run the gamut from near abstract exercises in image manipulation to simple recutting of found footage. Joon Soo Ha’s Just (2002) degrades film footage of a waving flag by reproducing each frame first on a color printer and then on a photocopier, to haunting effect. Alain Pelletier’s World Trade Opera (2003), the longest item, matches roughed-up images of urban and rural landscape with the periodic reading of disturbing environmental statistics. Other pieces are less successful, but overall the program is quite good. 85 min.
