Beginning with a reflection on the early AIDS epidemic, Jim Hodges’ collaborative film Untitled eschews linear narrative to introduce a fractious timeline, moving from the sublime to the tragic and back again. By juxtaposing mainstream network news, activist footage, artists’ works, and popular entertainment from the last turbulent decades, the film references regimes of power that precipitated a generation of AIDS and queer activism which continues today. (2010, Dir. J. Hodges, C. Marques da Cruz and E. King, 60 min.)
