Dirt and Perseverance
Four brand new projects from five up-and-coming video artists: Yvonne Welbon, Matthew Weinstein, Natasha Spencer, Karin Schneider, and Nicolas Guagnini.
Jenny Perlin's Perseverance and How To Develop It uses a 1915 book of the same name to consider historical ideas about depression and self-discipline.

In The Taste of Dirt, Yvonne Welbon presents a parable about a 7-year-old girl's encounter with racism at school.

Shot in New York, Miami, and Columbus, Matthew Weinstein's Ceiling Fan is a dreamlike narrative about sexual identity, using live action and 3-D animation software.
