Jennifer Montgomery and Matthias Müller both work in Super-8mm to explore the construction of their own sexualities. Montgomery uses autobiography and a faux-documentary style to question notions of truth and nostalgia. She will screen Home Avenue (1989) and Age 12: Love With a Little L (1990), where “in retracing my past I discover the fault lines of my own memory.” (J.M.). A founding member of the super-8 German group Alte Kinder, Müller will present his highly acclaimed Aus der Ferne (The Memo Book, 1989, 28 min.), a tactile meditation on the male body and how death has affected gay desire.
