larious critique of artistic support in
Give AIDS the Freeze by Cathy
Joritz of Dortmund, Germany takes
found footage of two men on a talk
show and overlays it with animation
to lampoon their white male hetero-
sexual insularity, making a plea for
AIDS awareness with fresh humor,
all set to Frank Sinatra's "Strangers
in the Night."
Confessions of a Southern Punk
by Done Pentes of Charlotte, North
Carolina is the only fictional narra-
tive of the group, a story of a misun-
derstood punk couple and their battle
with unwanted pregnancy and a
community that rejects them out of
conformity and ignorance. Its frank
treatment of abortion reminded me
of the topic's exclusion from main-
stream media, the impact it has on
real lives and relationships.
Oral Hygiene by David B. Fain
of Newhall California is a clayma-
tion treatment of dental care enacted
by dancing Salsa skulls.
Red Shovel by Leighton Pierce of
Iowa City is the most self-con-
sciously artistic of the group, a
purely imagistic piece consisting of
languid, blurred images with shifting
planes of focus, tied together by a
red plastic shovel in the foreground.
Set to abstract music and sounds,
"Red Shovel" is the impressionism
Finally, The Match that Started
My Fire by Cathy C. Cook of
Milwaukee is a potpourri piece
about female sexuality. The sound-
track consists of interviews with
women about their first sexual expe-
riences, usually masturbation or
childhood sex games. It's visually
brilliant with amazing image after
amazing image, some with no appar-
ent logic to the text of the film but
germane by virtue of the beauty and
editing. It was a fitting end to the 10
films in its combination of generic
elements: documentary, abstract vi-
sual and auditory, compositional ar-
rangement and narrative.

nity, the Ann Arbor Film Festival is
seen as an integral part of the city, as
vital as Zingerman's or the Art Fair.
Hammer, one of the most experi-
mental of contemporary filmmakers,
spoke of the Festival's integrity. "You
get a prize from the Ann Arbor Film
Festival, and you really feel like your
work has received a lot of recogni-
tion," she said.
Hammer was also astounded by
the amount of community support the
AAFF receives. "'The fact that it isn't
funded by the University, but is funded
by the community, and the audience
is community members make the film-
makers feel ... like people are choos-
ing to come," she said.
For yet anotheryear, Ann Arbor
will continue to be the place to be. A
dealing with issues that are important
to today's filmmaker, a chance to see
the works of many old and new inde-
pendent filmmakers -when you put
it all together you get quite a stellar
30th birthday bash.

"Nothing's really intentional,"
Muggs insists when asked about
Which naturally leads one to
what is perhaps Cypress Hill's
biggest inspiration, that "Phuncky
Buddha," and no, the guys aren't
into Eastern religion. Cuts like
"Ultraviolet Dreams," "Stoned is the
Way of the Walk" and the rollicking
"Light Another" - perhaps the best
pot anthem since Styx's "Light Up"
- have garnered plenty of attention
for the band, including a recent High
Times cover and work as the official
rap supporters of NORML (National
Organization for the Reform of
"Whosupported George Bush's
campaign?" asks Muggs. "A hun-
dred billion dollars came from com-
panies supported by the illegaliza-
tion of hemp.
"In a way, it's funny. In a way,
it's serious," he continues, referring
to King George's War on Drugs.
"There's a lot of fucked up people
out there ... The key is to keep con-
fusion among the peasants and
among the masses, keep us against
Muggs had never heard of the
Hash Bash, but he apparently liked
the sound of it, promising, "We'll be
