Cecilia Dougherty, "Kevin and Cedar" (2002, world premiere). In this
revealing portrait of San Francisco bohemia, Kevin Killian and Cedar Sigo
play themselves as Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud, trapped in a
destructive affair in an untidy SOMA apartment, surrounded by debris and
the flickering madness of their own poems. Video, 8 minutes, 10 seconds.

Karla Milosevich and Kevin Killian, "Love Can Build a Bridge." It’s
another sleepy dusty delta day in Marfa, Texas, the site of the famous
mystery lights and the home of Donald Judd’s art farm in West Texas. The
great American minimalist has died, and his survivors gather together to
hear his will read in the town’s one bar, Roy’s Cotton Club. This exciting
tale of conceptual art, country music, long-ago feuds and present-day
shamanism gathers together an eccentric cast of artists, poets, filmmakers
and painters, including Laurie Reid, Jocelyn Saidenberg, Bob Linder, Kota
Ezawa, Yedda Morrison, George Kuchar, Cliff Hengst, Anne McGuire, Scott
Hewicker, Craig Goodman, Norma Cole, Gerald Corbin, Wendy Kramer, Rex Ray,
& Wayne Smith.
