Four videos about the sorry state of the world. In the strongest, Jayce Salloum's (Untitled Part 1): Everything and Nothing (2002), former Lebanese National Resistance fighter Soha Bechara speaks eloquently from her student dorm in Paris about her decade in prison and her nation's travails under Israeli occupation. Two others engage in a scattershot fashion with the events of September 11: Bobby Abate's One Mile per Minute (2002) juxtaposes an animation of twin towers with landscapes seen sideways; Francois Bucher's White Balance (2002) views the disaster through the murky lens of academic “whiteness studies,” combining still photos of the towers ablaze with a series of titles citing “white” and “balanced” as synonyms for “fair,” rendering the words nearly meaningless in the process. Also showing: Shelly Silver's 1 (2002). 86 min.
