Portrait of Jason by Shirley Clarke( Visual )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subject and constant object of this film is male prostitute Jason Holliday giving a stream-of-consciousness "confession" of his life. He performs a pas de deux with the process of making the film: questions from the director and crew are heard, the crew laughs with him at his jokes, at times the camera runs out of film but the sound continues, with black leader replacing the picture. The film itself was shot over a twelve-hour period. Jason recounts tales from his life that define his identity. He describes how he changed his name to change his identity; work he held in the past as a houseboy to wealthy people; his homosexuality and the gay subculture in San Francisco and New York; visits to a psychiatrist; his love for alcohol; his aspiration to be a nightclub entertainer. He gives examples of his nightclub act, imitating female entertainers and movie roles such as Mae West and Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the wind. Towards the end, he is accused by an off-screen voice of being a liar. This brings him to tears, pleading to be loved. The filmmaker's voice ends the film by saying "The end."

Songdelay by Joan Jonas( Visual )

in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This 1973 black-and-white film is a rediscovered classic. Performing with a 'cast' that includes Gordon Matta-Clark, Jonas choreographs a theater of space, movement, and sound, with the urban landscape of New York in a featured role. Jonas creates a highly original if enigmatic theatrical language of gesture and sound, as she and her performers play with emblematic props, unexpected rhythms of space and scale, references to painting, and audio delays. At once delightfully improvisational and precisely choreographed, Song Delay resonates with themes and strategies that recur throughout Jonas' performance work."--Electronic Arts Intermix website

The rundown( Visual )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This short documentary presents an overview of those works by Robert Smithson that involved the pouring of viscous substances such as glue, asphalt and cement. A voiceover commentary by the artist helps explain some of his specific concerns in making these works, as well as elucidating his more general interests in entropy, geologic time, anti-form, the use of industrial materials, and the positioning of the artwork in the land as opposed to the gallery"--Electronic Arts Intermix website, viewed July 12, 2007
Shadow catcher : Edward S. Curtis and the North American Indian( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Native North Americans described early white photographers as "Shadow Catchers" for the power they possessed to stand before the sun and capture their subjects' spirits. Edward S. Curtis was arguably the greatest Shadow Catcher of them all. Over a 34 year period (1896-1930), he took over 40,000 photographs, recorded 10,000 songs and made numerous 35mm films --the most extensive anthropological project ever undertaken. The Shadow Catcher is a film that retraces Curtis' dramatic and eventful journeys from the pueblo regions of the Southwest, north to British Columbia and Alaska, re-creating events, dramatizing his struggles and featuring the photographs--many of them now world famous--that resulted. Curtis' own unpublished journals, field notes, and private letters are the source materials of this history-making film--which also includes all of Curtis' recoverable film footage."--Case
