The elderly residents of Westbeth Artists Housing in New York City are immersed in their art practice as though there is no tomorrow. Video artist Edith Stephen, hopes to complete an experimental film for her birthday; contemporary dancer Dudley Williams, rehearses for an electrifying return to the stage; and published poet Ilsa Gilbert, candidly weaves her experience with breast cancer into her work. A celebration of artistic exploration no matter one's age, Winter at Westbeth captures inspirational stories about aging and the need to keep creating.

Deej (#514) Duration: 1:26:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Deej is the story of DJ Savarese ("Deej"), a gifted, young writer and advocate for nonspeaking autistics. Once a "profoundly disabled" foster kid on a fast track to nowhere, DJ is now a first-year college student who insists on standing up for his peers: people who are dismissed as incompetent because they are neurologically diverse. Will Deej be able to find freedom for himself and others like him?

Through The Repellent Fence (#609) Duration: 56:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Through the Repellent Fence follows the creation of a two-mile long ephemeral art installation by three Native American artists: Raven Chacon, Crist?bal Mart?nez, and Kade L. Twist collectively known as "Postcommodity." The film documents their collaboration as they construct "Repellent Fence," a metaphorical "stitching" together the United States and Mexico. Their work puts "land art in a tribal context," to illuminate a shared Indigenous world-view and the legacy that connects the original people to their land. Viewers are provided an intimate glimpse into the process behind creating the ambitious yet temporary artwork. With the volunteer help of communities on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, "Repellent Fence" was installed with a series of twenty-eight enormous inflatable yellow-gold spheres. Emblazoned with an insignia known as the "open eye" -- a symbol that has existed in Indigenous cultures of the Americas for thousands of years -- the spheres extended north and south of the border a mile in each direction. The artist collective was featured in the 2017 Whitney Museum Biennale.
