"CONTROverse: Contemporary Visions of the US-Mexico Border," showcases the work of a small but diverse group of multi-media artists. For these artists, the border exists as a rift that constitutes a controverse not universe, a place where artists are compelled to defend the humanity of people or imagine a dystopic future. The artists in this exhibition use the border as the context for their explorations of personal, technological, social and political relations in crisis.
LIVING IN TIJUANA provides a glimpse into the lives of seven, very unusual inhabitants of the city of Tijuana, Mexico. Derrik, Gerda, Jodi, Jason, Michael, Iana, and Jenny are not Hispanic, and they don't exactly appear as though they would "blend in" in the Mexican border town that has been called one the most dirty and dangerous cities of North America. Yet this film follows these gringos, in their daily activities, while they show and explain why they chose to live in the city they love -- Tijuana.
