Works from the Eisner Prize Competition

The Eisner Prize is the highest award for creativity given on the UC Berkeley campus. This program presents works by this year's two winners in film and video, Jason Blalock and Brian George, along with a diverse sampling of videos from the competition. Brian George will screen The Electric Arctic Circle, a hallucinatory record of a beautiful, wild road trip undertaken by three friends on motorcycles. Jason Blalock will present American/Sandinista, a portrait of Ben Linder and other young Americans who traveled to Nicaragua to help bring electricity to a small town during the Nicaraguan civil war. A program containing written descriptions by the artists will complement the screening. This year's judges were UC Berkeley staff and faculty Kwame Braun, Mark Berger, Kathy Geritz, Gary Handman, and Jeffrey Skoller.
