  • Tender Bodies

    2003. USA. Directed by James Duesing. A polymorphously perverse animated short about a genetically altered unicorn. 8 min.

  • Sleep Dealer

    2008. USA/Mexico. Written, directed, and edited by Alex Rivera. With Luis Fernando Peña, Leonor Varela, Jacob Vergas. Winner of two Sundance awards and a highlight of the 2008 New Directors/New Films festival, Rivera’s debut feature is a smart, imaginative parable about the cyber-trafficking of human memory and feelings, the exploitation of migrant labor and natural resources, and the viability of leftist resistance movements. A.O. Scott, in The New York Times, called Sleep Dealer “exuberantly entertaining, a dystopian fable of globalization disguised as a science-fiction adventure…. Rivera—a brilliant young director—takes his audience into a future of “aqua-terrorism” and cyberlabor that I wish I could dismiss as implausible.” In Spanish, English; English subtitles. 90 min.
