Lynn Hershman-Leeson - Strange Culture (2007)

Better than Sunday TV:

Lynn Hershman-Leeson - Strange Culture (2007)
Documentary Film 76 mins.
The surreal nightmare of internationally-acclaimed artist and professor Steve Kurtz began when his wife Hope died in her sleep of heart failure. Police who responded to Kurtz’s 911 call deemed Kurtz’s art suspicious and called the FBI. Within hours the artist was detained as a suspected "bioterrorist" as dozens of federal agents in Hazmat suits sifted through his work and impounded his computers, manuscripts, books, his cat, and even his wife’s body. Today Kurtz and his long-time collaborator Dr. Robert Ferrell, Professor of Genetics at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, await a trial date.

Get it while the Torrent is hot (like very very fast at the moment) at Art Torrents.
