BORDERLAND
FILM/ARTS FESTIVAL 2004:
A Multidisciplinary Project

The Borderland Festival is a rich multi-layered exhibition which began on Nov .29 with a series of interventions in San Francisco. On Dec. 2 the program opened on a wider front with a film festival, a gallery reception and a live "psychomagick" radio presention by members of the Enemy Combatant Radio / Indybay crew.

MissionArtist.net and the Borderland Collective have gathered a diverse range of multi-disciplinary artist and media active participants to "share an understanding of both the physical Mexico/U.S border and the more implicit socially constructed borders that surround us all."

This month-long exhibition investigates a multitude of perspectives "of borders or borderlands and how the artist either contests the border construction or has been shaped by it."
