Studio 27, a micro-cinema showcasing experimental media in the San Francisco Bay Area, is looking for recent short videos and films. Our next screening, in July, takes its title and theme from the book State of Exception by Georgio Agamben. Agamben describes a political condition that has a compelling contemporary resonance in the United States. In states of siege or war, governmental institutions have justified the suspension of civil law, arguing that the higher law of sustaining the state��'��"�s well-being requires that certain civil liberties be withheld. We are interested in showing documentary and experimental media that responds to this condition, or that opens a dialogue for discussing the necessity or consequences of the current administration��'��"�s direction. We welcome work from all sides of the political spectrum.
