  • Spectres of the Spectrum

    1999. USA. Written and directed by Craig Baldwin. “Subterranean poet of paranoia, bricolage wizard Craig Baldwin makes movies that are half radical firestorm and half psychotic poppycock, and the mixture is virtually self-defining: cheap cultural flotsam recycled into more of the same, but emerging from the surgery with an insurrectionary temper. Each individual redefinition of the lost-and-found footage Baldwin uses contains a book's worth of political commentary, but he's less pedantic than he is pulp-satiric, and the movies are endlessly unpackable…. Spectres whip[s] original footage of ranting-revolutionaries-of-the-future in with a mountain of advertising films, government reels, cheapjack features, and forgotten TV shows to rewrite twentieth-century history as a struggle for control over electromagnetic media, from radio to the Internet (Michael Atkinson, The Village Voice). 92 min.

  • You Won’t Remember This

    2002. USA. Directed and animated by Jeff Scher. Scher, whose award-winning films are included in MoMA’s collection, has devoted the past couple years to making joyous, witty, breathtakingly (and breathlessly) inventive, and impeccably titled short works for The New York Times's Opinionator blog. His animated You Won’t Remember This is among the best of these, a loving gift from a father to his infant son (or is it the other way around…?). 3 min.
