Light Work’s Urban Video Project is pleased to present a special indoor screening of Marlon said to me, ‘Maria, don’t worry, it’s only a movie’, the latest episode of “secret” TV show The Eyeslicer. This program was guest curated by feminist filmmakers Jennifer Reeder, Kelly Sears, and Lauren Wolkstein in the aftermath of 2017’s revelations about Harvey Weinstein and the subsequent #MeToo movement and serves as a timely meditation on the representation of the gendered body.

Anneka Herre, director of UVP and Instructor in the Department of Transmedia at Syracuse University, will moderate a post-screening conversation on Thursday, November 21, 6 – 8 p.m. Reception follows. FREE & OPEN to the public!

The boundary pushing works in this program include entries that are surreal, darkly humorous, deeply disturbing, eerily enchanting, and certain to leave you invigorated. “Marlon said to me,” unpacks the heavy baggage of cinematic tropes and airs out pop culture’s dirty laundry.
