ikki S. Lee's a.k.a. Nikki S. Lee
October 5–7, 2006
a.k.a. Nikki S. Lee, shot on digital video mainly in New York, Seoul, Paris, Venice, Mexico City, Frankfurt, and Santa Fe, explores and expands the play between truth and fiction. The film—about assuming identities, any one of which may indeed be Lee's true identity—tracks the events of the two most recent years of Lee's own life and suggests that someone else is making the autobiographical documentary in which at least two distinct personalities emerge as she shops, visits art collectors at home, and attends gallery openings abroad.
Organized by Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, Department of Film and Media.
