Blackchair Label: Manifest Destiny

In a speech in Cape Town, South Africa, on June 7, 1966, Robert F. Kennedy said, "There is a Chinese curse which says, "May you live in interesting times."

Even though there is no such saying "in Chinese" it is applies all too well to the first decade of the 21st century.

Since 9/11, Afghanistan, and Iraq, Independent Exposure has seen an increasing stream of moving image art submissions that interpret our times. Artists have the gift of focusing on a subject by rendering it abstract - paradoxically stripping away the layers of our consciousness and laying bare a reality for all to plainly see.

Manifest Destiny highlights ten works from international directors that acutely interpret our times. The works range from the humorous, hysterical, ranting, serious, personal to disturbing - yet uniformly interesting."
