Black
USA | 2004
English version with Czech subtitles | 3,5 min
dir.: Charles Lum
A video interview with a performance artist EggMan about sub-cultures, behavior and the flexibility of the definition of black (noun, adjective…). It weaves through a verbal dialogue of unsafe sexual activities from a context where such behavior is normative. Definitions of the word “black” expose how definitions in language arbitrarily can and do indict both behavior and people.

Overdue Conversation
USA | 2004
English version with Czech subtitles | 9 min
dir.: Charles Lum
A dialogue about sex, responsibility and HIV. This short addresses AIDS with a new tactic - eliminating camera crew and cross cutting, the subjects/objects and audience become split-screen equals as participants, witness, and editors in a candid video confrontation over sexual truthfulness. As HIV mutates and proliferates, like so many video camera accoutrements, this conversation remains long overdue.
