Monday. We relax. We eat dinner together with our visiting artists at Highschool around 6:30 pm and take in an evening of short video programs and documentaries from a cast of international video festivals, collectives and directors. Taking the theme of the multiplex - where often times people see more than one movie for the price of one admission - visitors wander through our temporary multiplex, watch multiple video programs and eat as much popcorn that they can.

8pm End of Suburbia 80 min
Since World War II North Americans have invested much of their newfound wealth in suburbia. It has promised a sense of space, affordability, family life and upward mobility. As the population of suburban sprawl has exploded in the past 50 years, so too the suburban way of life has become embedded in the American consciousness.

9:30 pm: The Take By Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis (2004) 87 min
Filmed in Argentina over the course of eight months, The Take documents the beginnings of a new social movement that took place under the radar of the world's media. The recent economic crisis that shattered Argentina caused widespread dislocation and pushed more than half the population into extreme poverty. However, at two hundred factories, schools, supermarkets, and health clinics, something remarkable happened: rather than allowing their workplaces to be closed down, they turned these bankrupt businesses into productive, democratically-run cooperatives. The Take tells this story of working people forging genuine alternatives to the brutal economic realities of the Washington Consensus--a story whose implications are universal, and more important than ever.'

11pm Taliban Country Carmela Baranowska (2004) 45 min
Taliban Country is a disturbing exposé of American actions in Afghanistan. Journalist Carmela Baranowska spent three weeks embedded with the marines. She then returned in secret to document what was really happening. It’s a story of prisoners abused and villagers humiliated. This report prompted a US inquiry.

10pm Invincible Desire curated by Heaven 50 min
This program is in connection with the Heaven Gallery Screening Series. The Heaven Film/Video community responded to the call for work that applied to the theme of the Version 05' festival, "Invincible Desire". To an artist, and in this case the art of motion picture, the issue and pull of Desire is a decisive part of the creative act. Art fulfills the desire to create or illustrates and expresses a desire. In the past year HVN's screening series have increasingly requested thematic submissions and in doing so we have created a dialogue between the gallery and the artists and then between the artists themselves. A loose community of filmmakers evolved. This cohesion is a united response or creative echo to the communities we live and work in. This program includes recent work by Matthew Stenerson, Mary Sherer, Jason Britski and more.

Selected screening wil be presented with a pirate television simulcast!

Installations at the Multiplex

GLACK by Svetlana and Andi Wallwhore

Gun Control by Scott Kildall is an electromechanical installation uses a police-issue revolver and a small video camera to track the audience. Gun control is a response to questions concerning security-surveillance apparatus.

I Am Innocent, I Am Evil by Aya Lafillette: The interactive installation asks participants to choose between "I am innocent" and "I am evil", with the responses producing a sound installation. This dialogue addresses the contradictions of our society by engaging in-depth the comparative adjectives we use everyday.

TeleAutomaton by David Marine

by Svetlana and Andi Wallwhore: A post-porn silent interactive video, Ovarium channels the nonsense of USA corporate media doublespeak from Vaudeville burlesque to banal camp. "This is propaganda expressing itself. It is broken down directly for you" — Agitprop.

Can We Communicate by Clara Alcott Is an experiment in containing emotion and the ability to connect with the viewer in one slow shot, this piece is 16mm Reversal Speed Study, digitized.
