Our second round of Poli-Sci-Cinema mirrors last week’s: A half-hour of political “briefs” sets up a long-form tonight’s case, Curtis’ recent, riveting Bitter Lake! Experimental collage-cum-critical essay, our fave avant-garde broadcaster takes on the tangled triangle of power relations between the US, Afghanistan, and Saudi Arabia. Curtis manages to connect all the dots—and then some—in this spot-on demonstration of TV-archival research turned to anti-imperialist ends. Not shown outside the UK because of copyrights, this sneak peek affords a blinding light on the Endless War of our generation. OPENING are Mark Brecke’s (in person) Lost Leader (on Somalia), Laura PoitrasDeath of a Prisoner (on Guantanamo), Dana O’Keefe’s Vladimir Putin in Deep Concentration, and CGB’s 35mm live-mix C.I.A.S.U.X. $7 *8PM
