The AGM is hosting screenings of the following films courtesy of Vtape:

RED LIPS [CAGES FOR BLACK GIRLS] | 2010 | 17:47
Director: kyisha williams

This film begins to explore black/racialized/criminalized/queer/trans/ identity and its relationship to the prison industrial complex. It articulates links between interpersonal and systemic violence - while celebrating the (sexy) ways in which we survive and celebrate ourselves.

MAKING LADIES | 2010 | 08:33
Directors: Lesley Loksi Chan and Dilia Narduzzi

Allyson Mitchell is a maximalist artist working predominantly in sculpture, installation and film. Since 1997, Mitchell has been melding feminism and pop culture to play with contemporary ideas about sexuality, autobiography, and the body, largely through the use of reclaimed textile and abandoned craft.

In 2009 Allyson Mitchell's sculptural installation LADIES SASQUATCH was unleashed, both delighting and frightening viewers. This short documentary gives insightful interviews with Mitchell about the layered concepts behind her provocative work. The film weaves interviews with images of her exquisitely engaging sculptures to explore the interconnections between bodies, monsters, art and the hand-made.

FROM ALEX TO ALEX | 2006 | 06:11
Director: Alison S.M. Kobayashi

In the fall of 2003 I found a letter on the Winston Churchill Blvd QEW overpass. It was labeled From: Alex To: Alex. This is a film based on the contents of that letter.
