  Health, Wealth, Name, and Fame (Rangpur) | Gautam Kansara | 2009 | 10:55 min.
Health, Wealth, Name, and Fame
begins to piece together my journey to Rangpur, the remote village in India where my Grandfather was born. Rangpur is still the epitome of rural life, an increasing rarity in India as more and more people abandon their village roots and flock to the cities. A year after my Grandfather’s death I find myself a guest in his village and invited to dinner at Kanu’s house, a distant relative whom I am meeting for the first time. The soundtrack that accompanies the piece is an amalgamation of conversations recorded over the past 6 years of my Grandfather remembering his village and dreaming of returning to it one day.

  When How To Live Was Undecided | Darren Floyd | 2009 | 15:00 min.
Shot between 1998 and 2006, When How To Live Was Undecided spans the time between to events: A pregnancy and a marriage. Part scripted narrative, part art document, the film utilizes portraiture, art performance, and interviews to explore themes of family, pregnancy, perversion and friendship among young contemporary artists. As the film gently poses the internal question, "What kind of film is this?" a subtle story emerges, replete with emotional tension and resolution.

Darren Floyd is an motion picture artist who works with 16mm film, video, and zines. His films and videos have used portraiture, letter writing, collaboration, and improvisation as structural elements in experimental narrative films. He is currently working on a film project of supernatural self-portraits that combine landscape cinematography and direct-address narration to trace a narrative and emotional arc. Darren has been invited to Cornell University as an Artist-In-Residence beginning in the fall of 2009, where he will be working on a public art motion portraiture project. Darren holds a MFA in Film and Media Art from Temple University and a BA in Women's Studies from The College of Wooster.
  Don’t Let Me Down | Abbey Williams | 2009 | 9:26 min.
Don't Let Me Down meditates on the arc of the creative process via pregnancy, motherhood, fertility, and sexuality Williams set out on this body of work in anticipation of the birth of her first child and completed the work prior to her expected due date. Then the unthinkable happened, her son died in labor and was delivered stillborn on January 26, 2009.

Abbey Williams' work has been exhibited at Tate Britain (London), PS1/MOMA (New York), The Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), Reina Sofia Museum (Madrid)  and The Studio Museum of Harlem (New York). The artist lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
