Untitled presents a non-linear montage of archival and pop footage to conjure up the passionate activism sparked by the early years of the AIDS crisis. Unspooling at multiple levels, the narrative flies between scenes of tragic brutality and kitschy humor, arch clips of laughter and ironic surprises while shredding traditional chronology. CAMH Director Bill Arning will introduce this 2010 video created by artist Jim Hodges and filmmakers Carlos Marques da Cruz and Encke King, which is being screened in conjunction with Donald Moffett: The Extravagant Vein. Structurally,Untitled melds together video, film, and music from more than 45 sources including archival activist footage, mainstream network news broadcasts, artists’ documentation, and popular TV and film. By juxtaposing fractious scenes from the last few turbulent decades, Untitled presents a powerful and provocative reflection on an era when political protest and personal existence converged.
Originally distributed for 2011 World AIDS Day/Day With(out) Art by Visual AIDS.
