Calm Calm Calm Calm (1990) 16mm, color, 8 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Children & Youth

"A woman chews steak and gazes onto a scene of kids-in-boats circling around to the repeated sound of a chorus asking "Father" for permission (or knowledge or approval or power). Takes a critical yet humorous stab at patriarchy through its use of found materials--the "rat on the sidewalk".

Curve Point (1991) 16mm, color, 7 min

Genre: Experimental

Two people traverse the landscape of San Francisco in an atmosphere of pervasive doom--whether it be the destruction of a city, the decline of humanity, the dissolution of a love relationship, or a debilitating neurosis. Imagine CURVE POINT as some turn along a winding road (say Highway 1) which is either the site of many accidents or a spot to park & romance while enjoying the view.

Knucklebones (1992) 16mm, black and white, 13 min

Genre: Experimental

Follows the course of hysterical outburst to instances of alienation and isolation. From a 1903 newspaper, "While fifteen hundred persons looked on in breathless excitement, an electric bolt sent the man-killing elephant staggering to the ground. With her own life, she paid for the lives if the three men she had killed."

Puss! The Booted Cat (1995) 16mm, black and white, 13 min

Genre: Narrative

Keywords: Erotic

PUSS! THE BOOTED CAT is an erotic short that laps up the various incarnations of the classic fairytale Puss-In-Boots. The tale, popularized in 17th century France by author Charles Perrault, is here transformed into a contemporary adventure of unrequited love, lands-titles-and-goods-to-be-conquered, identities-to-be-claimed, and feminine feline power. The heroine, who is both the woman Mademoiselle Puss and Puss the car, battles loss and misfortune with irrepressible rebellious energies. At last she is able to relax in her throne of the Bubastic Queendom, enjoying music, dance, and a most unusual mushroom--it had once been the ogre whose vengeance is the catalyst of this particular episode in one of her nine lives. The film's black-and-white images, intertitles, nonsynchronous sound, low tech "tricks", and theatricalized acting-style borrow from early film even as its modern-day references, fast paced editing, and feminist sensibility place it paws down in the present. --C. K.
