The first night of our Art & Tech Update series features films by Joe Sola, Michael Mercil, Jeremy Newman, Kristin Lucas, and Beverly Peterson.

Commissioned by the Leo Yassenoff Recruitment Center, Ohio State art professor Michael Mercil's The Greatest Sports Video Ever was recorded during last year's football season in the newly renovated stadium, (2001; 13 mins.)

Cleveland native Jeremy Newman's Sasha is a lyrical translation of the ordinary world as experienced by his recently deceased grandmother. (2001; 7 mins.)

A veteran of last year's The Church of What's Happening Now exhibition, Brooklyn-based videomaker and internet artist Kristin Lucas returns with Involuntary Reception, which continues her series of genre-confounding critiques of media saturation. (2001; 19 mins.)

Included in last year's Human Rights Watch International Film Festival, Beverly Peterson's Invisible Revolution is an extraordinary inside look at racist pro-white movements. (2000; 56 mins.)
