FRENZY: A Riot Decade, the next installment of Dirty Looks, a roving monthly platform for queer experimental film and video. FRENZY looks at the generation of young, feminist and queer voices that took culture by storm in the 1990s through zines, music and filmmaking.

The program includes five films: Sadie Benning’s It Wasn't Love (PixelVision, 20min, 1992), Shu Lea Cheang’s Fingers and Kisses(video, 4min, 1995), Michael Lucid’s Dirty Girls(video, 18min,  1996/2000), Jennifer Reeves, Monsters in the Closet (16mm, 15min, 1993) and Jill Reiter’s Frenzy (Super 8 on digital video, 12min, 1993). Filmmakers Benning, Lucid, Reeves and Reiter will be in attendance.

Curated by Dirty Looks’s founder Bradford Nordeen.

This program is made possible with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts
and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State
Council on the Arts, a state agency.
