Recent experimental films that include facts and imaginations, memories and impressions; the Quinta da Regaleira; vintage automobiles and faded mannequins; spoken word poetry; a subversive spin on the traditional mythology of women; and tension between the in and out of focus. Jessica Mensch closes the program with a live performance invoking the keeper of the threshold that separates the living from the dead.

The file card of an anonymous autopsy report documents violent attacks as the “cause of death.” Jyoti Mistry constructs five miniature vignettes to the rhythm of evocative spoken word poetry by Napo Masheane, accompanied by a collection of archival bits and pieces from the Eye Filmmuseum—ethnographic film footage, chorus-line films, and physical culture films. Femicide, witch hunts, stonings.
