John Sayles’s comedy gives a smart, political edge to the oft-told “stranger in a strange land” sci-fi story with African-American actor Joe Morton as “The Brother”, an alien stranded in New York City. Chased by two white Men in Black, he must also negotiate a myriad of class and racial challenges. The film’s connection between “alienness” and “blackness” resonated strongly with musician and performer Geo Wyeth (who released his first studio album, Alien Tapes): “I wish I had seen this as a teenager… If you have ever felt your own body permeating unseen dimensions or worlds, unreachable by language or logical perception, you will connect to this film.”
R, 108 Minutes
As always, the screening will be followed by drinks and discussion at Julius Bar (159 West 10th St. at Waverly), the oldest gay bar in New York City!

19th century American gynecologist James Marion Sims, famous for perfecting his procedures on enslaved African women, encounters his biracial transgender great-great-great grandchild in a collapsed and imagined dream space. Drawing from both real and imagined family stories, HAUNTS retraces a contradictory history of violence and ironic inheritance through an incantation of dreams and embodied recollection. Using the bodies on stage as a point of converging histories, HAUNTS is an anxious meditation on the urgency of memory.
HAUNTS is a set of musical puzzles, navigated live on stage. A process of reaching and understanding and forgetting. Confrontation with an impossible legacy. HAUNTS is humiliating.
Developed through the support of the Jerome Foundation Travel & Research Grant, Ars Nova Residency 2009, and the San Francisco Performance Art Institute artist in residency program.
