SO the jury did do a great job of picking the good stuff. BUT some of the work I really liked didn't make the cut so i thought i would just make a little nook of the site that's just for me to put the videos i liked! so here is 6 that didn't get selected by the jury that i wanted to show you!
Creator of Video! Video! Zine
by Liz Cambron & Soheila Azadi/ Music by CUNT STORM
3min 18sec, Chicago IL, 2015
"A monster is generally morally objectionable, physically or psychologically hideous, and/or a freak of nature. The root of ""monstrum"" is ""monere""—which does not only mean to warn, but also to instruct, and forms the basis of the modern English demonstrate. Thus, the monster is also a sign or instruction.
Mother Monster is the second installment in Liz Cambron and Soheila Azadi’s video triptych focusing on the femme and female monster. It is in collaboration with the band CUNT STORM and this particular video foregrounds the performativity of the body in a warm, dark, generative void."

sequestXpress (GTA dub)
3min 15sec, Chicago IL, 2015
"In 2013 I was living in Mexico City, working as a music journalist for Gozamos.com and Remezcla.com barely scraping by on sheer will and $15 checks for blurbs on the Latin American music and arts scene. I went there to get to know my extended family, to live and experience what it would have been like if my immediate family had never moved to the U.S. I stayed there for 2 years, and in that time death surrounded me. My grandfather died in The States, Mexico was seeing an increase in cartel and police violence, and one of my cousins had her car hijacked. She was kidnapped for a brief while and upon hearing her story, I was moved to react somehow. Creation is sometimes the only way to deal with the crazy shit in the world. So I invented luigi, my alternate, more real, and not so sub or altern, alterego. Shit's weird."
