ReCalibrate: Michelle Dizon’s Video Works

Michelle Dizon In Person

Sunday, April 9, 2006, 7:30 pm, $8

Experimental video artist Michelle Dizon comes to San Francisco Cinematheque from Los Angeles for her first solo screening.  Working with home movies shot in California and the Philippines, low-end video, numerous found images from the web and other films, and carefully culled and original texts, Dizon articulates a compelling political and aesthetic vision that constantly questions the status quo of language, images, and the power embedded in them.   In our current context of globalization and war, pieces such as Calibrate; Département des Arts de l’Islam; We, the Undersigned, Girls of Hiroshima; and her newest piece, The Great Wall compel us to re-think representational and political practices. We will also screen earlier, more intimate, works including My Child, Anak and A Family Sick.
