Video Remains

SCALE: Measuring Might in the Media Age
A documentary video by Alexandra Juhasz. Featuring Antonia Juhasz, 60 mins, 2008.

In a time of illicit war, unchecked corporate greed, and a presidential regime that supports such indecencies, two sisters take the media into their own hands. Antonia writes a potential anti-Bush bestseller and goes on a corporate book tour.

Alex documents her sister’s "scale-shift," following Antonia’s ups and downs. Divisions and connections between the sisters mirror those within the left itself, as the sisters experience the power of individual action, media attention, and grassroots movements for social justice.

Video Remains

Video Remains: In 1993, Alex shoots an interview with her best friend Jim as he tries to recount his life as he is dying. In 2004, she re-works this haunted video, playing it in real-time but letting bleed in a host of present day interviewees who also reflect upon AIDS, death, activism, and video.

Dear Gabe

Dear Gabe presents six professional women who seek to explain to the next generation-our children-how we manage (or do not) given the complex choices that are now open to us. Intimate dv-footage reveals women who bend traditional ideas of race, sexuality, religion, and gender into more equitable forms while still respecting "family values."

Produced by Alexandra Juhasz, Distributed by Cinema Guild.
