Steve Kurtz's nightmare began on May 11, 2004, when he awoke to find his wife dead of heart failure. Police responding to his distressed 911 call became suspicious of biological equipment in his house and contacted the FBI. Only hours after his wife's tragic death, he found himself detained as a suspected "bioterrorist," as dozens of federal agents in Hazmat suites scoured his home, seizing his art materials, computers, manuscripts, books, his cat, and even his wife's body. This film is a docudrama, i.e., a combination of interviews, documentary footage, and reconstructed scenes using actors about those events

"A dramatized biography of Lady Ada Lovelace, daughter of Romantic poet Lord Byron and mathematics genius who developed what became the world's first computer language 100 years before computers. Ada's story is told through Emmy, a contemporary computer scientist who is researching artificial life. By using her own genetic code, Emmy is able to collapse time and link her world directly to Ada's. Realizing how parallel their lives are, she embarks on the task of "saving" Ada as the lines between the past and present, virtual reality and reality blur in the process."--Container

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over four decades, through performance, photography, installations, artificial intelligence agents, web presences and cinema, Lynn Hershman's work has explored what it is to live in a world of mediated, monitored, and manipulated identities. Corporeal and virtual presences become simulated entities that in turn reveal personal identity and its impact on cultural construction. Often Hershman's narratives retrieve formerly lost histories that are excavated through technological manipulation. The process brings to the surface the moral consequences of an unpredictable system of covert meanings. All of her work explores encryption of privacy in an era of surveillance as well as personal and societal identity in a time of pervasive yet covert manipulation. Many of the narratives focus on the revitalization and restoration of personal empowerment. The selected works in this collection focus on broad issues of identity and culture, particularly the technological projections that impact individuals and society.--http://www.microcinemadvd.com/
