SAM GREEN + MARK BRECKE + JAMES HONG + BEN WOOD +
Our good neighbor Sam is eager to share his plans and progress on his long-form Esperanto-obsessed essay "Universal Language". In his media-heavy lecture-demo,
the erstwhile maker of "Weather Underground" and "Rainbow Man", along with producer Carrie Lozano, anchor a 40-min. feedback session on the major talking-points of his utopia project, towards developing its salient issues and aesthetic concerns. Resonant with Sam’s theme of international cooperation, Brecke returns to home base after African photo assignments to launch his new book "Darfur/Darfur" and answer questions about facts on the ground and in world councils. Mr. Hong is circling back too, from Jerusalem, to premiere here his half-hr. political commentary, "This Shall Be a Sign", on the architectural threat to the native Palestinian population. Ben Wood, by way of SFAI and MIT, also comes back to deliver a daring video-essay on the shameful erasure of Diego Rivera’s Rockefeller Center mural, engaging with Rivera’s family and former colleagues at the eventual site of "Man at the Crossroads" in Mexico City. $7.
