Repeats on Saturday - April 10th, 1999 - 11:30am, 5:30pm, and 5:00am

Citizen Jesse
Minnesota's unexpected new governor is an extraordinary, paradoxical character. Yet given his supporting roles in Schwarzenegger vehicles like Predator, he didn't exactly seem like the ideal candidate for Split Screen. That is until T.J. and Beth Larson, our eyes and ears in Minneapolis, sent us a local indie film starring Jesse.

AV Geeks
Ahh...16mm educational films. Sex education. Head Lice. Hemo the Magnificent. These were films, not video tapes. That part of our culture would be completely lost without collectors, collectors like North Carolina's Skip Elsheimer. Joe Corey profiles Skip and his collection. They used to be housemates. When Joe moved out, 8,000 films moved in.

Ugly George & Maggie
Remember Ugly George? The Manhattan public access peeping Tom who spent his days scouring NYC streets in search of women who'd peel for his camera? Split Screen regulars Doug Stone and P.H. O'Brien arranged a meeting with George (or is that "Ugly") and documentarian Maggie Hadleigh West, whose recently completed The War Zone examines men's public attention to women. Or, as she's fond of calling it, "street abuse." It's a camera-in-hand confrontation.
