    Using phone personals, databases, and internet searches, a young gay man uses digital technology to remember boyfriends past, in the search of boyfriends future.
    HANDY MAN (Nelson Henricks 11:00 1999)
    HANDY MAN examines the window as a site of voyeurism and surveillance. This footage forms the basis of a video which attempts to implicate the viewer in processes of exhibitionism and image fetishization. HANDY MAN is part of a trilogy of works which explores one of the principle metaphors of video: the window.

    Inkster s beautiful fiction references the destruction of Africville on the outskirts of Halifax in 1969. Four characters speak directly to the camera about their lives. The direct address says documentary, but the actors speak Inkster s bittersweet words.
    STOP STARING AND LISTEN (Catherine McCollum 15:00 1999)
    The Bearded Lady tells the gay mainstream to shut the fuck up and listen, turn its scrutinizing eyes on their own transphonbia, racism and poorbashing, and to think hard about their misuse of the term community.
