Exposing the News

Eye Gallery (now closed)

Three works challenging “objectivity” as represented in journalistic and documentary reporting: Bill Stamets’ Novo Dextro follows activities of Chicago’s hate groups and resistance to them; News Diaries, Part 3: Death of the News, by the Buffalo 8mm News Collective, interviews people formerly “covered” by t.v. news stories, allowing them to critique their representation in the mainstream media; Las Hurdes is Bunuel’s pseudo-documentary portraying a forsaken mountain village. Total: 107 min.
