FROM THE NAKED EYE CINEMA - Examines the relationship between the rise of homophobia and racism during times of frenzied patriotism. The image of Whitney Houston singing the national anthem at Superbowl XXV is juxtaposed with CNN news footage of millitary maneuvers in the Persian Gulf, and a five borough anti-violence march organized by the New York Lesbian and Gay and Lesbian Anti-Violence Project.
