Dana Plays: Nuclear Family and Other Films

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Dana Plays will present a selection of films that she has made over the past fourteen years, including her recent award-winning Nuclear Family, which uses found footage to create a dark portrait of the violence and turbulences underlying seemingly ordinary family life. Dana will also present Love Stories My Grandmother Tells, a densely metaphorical portrait of her 90 year-old paternal grandmother reminiscing about her early bohemian life and love affairs; Zero Hour, an examination of the changing face of war documentation as evident through WWII US Navy war material and Shards.
