Strange Culture

Directed by Lynn Hershman Leeson

This documentary graphically and personally exposes the paranoia and erosion of civil liberties in the US since 9/11. Artist and professor Steve Kurtz was arrested under incredible circumstances and held as a suspected terrorist – for materials he was using in an art work on genetic modification in food. Three years later he still faces charges and up to 20 years in prison.
