The Jettisoned Project
3 channel installation (RED, HD projection, 2011, 8:46 min loop)


Yoni Goldstein is an Israeli born, Chicago based filmmaker, cinematographer, and editor whose work puts forward multi-sited transects of body, conflict, and diaspora. Developing multilayered approaches to the documentary, Goldstein has gone on to work on a number of socially critical film projects: from examining hybridized healing practices in the Northern Andes (“La Curación”) to critical visualizations of trauma and disembodiment (“G-Loc: Vivid Dreamlets / Beautiful Places”). His films have circulated in numerous regional, national, and international festivals, conferences, and galleries.

Meredith Zielke is an award-winning American independent filmmaker, photographer, and performance artist. Zielke’s creative practice appropriates and embodies the medical and anatomizing gaze. She co-directed a series of large scale video tableaux vivants with Goldstein titled “The Jettisoned,” currently touring internationally as a modular video installation produced and developed in Chicago, Warsaw, and Mexico City. Her work has been presented internationally across several major cities, including London, Paris, Berlin, Warsaw, New York, Chicago, Montreal, and Seoul.

In the summer of 2004, Yoni Goldstein and Meredith Zielke founded Standing Point Films as a vehicle for socially critical and community oriented film art production.
