This Friday Rachel Blackwell and Jesse Gelaznik are showing new video and film work at the 92Y TriBeca, 200 Hudson Street. Rachel will be showing videos whose themes include the presence and absence of ritual in contemporary life and the universality of death. Jesse has composed live scores for Rachel's work that will be performed by The Dirty Churches. The live score moving image combo recalls the early days of cinema and is an eerie and exciting way to see Rachel's work.

Also playing are two new films by Jesse. Beautifully shot by DP Miguel Drake McLaughlin, the works evoke a narrative world particularly unsettling in that it may or may not be a dream.
