The Texas Show: Works from the Dallas Video Festival
Festival Director Bart Weissin Person Though international in scope, the Dallas VideoFestival curates an annual selection of videoworks created by independentproducers working in Texas. Tonight's program is the ninth such compilationbanishing the idea that Texas just means big when it can also mean funny,critical, sexy, safe, goofy, original, and, sometimes, butch. The works in theTexas Show range from a bizarre salute to youthful beauty in Weirdo Song to thejoys of bondage in Leather, from the Koyaanisqatsi lookalike Rhythm of the Earthto that epic of lost love Circus of the Sexes, Part III. The styles and aims areincredibly varied, too, from music videos to cable access comedy, from formalexperimentation to kidvid extravaganza.
