A disturbing and darkly humorous reminder of the cyclical nature of politics and history, small lies, Big Truth transports viewers back to the impeachment of Bill Clinton and the then-scandalous 1998 Grand Jury testimony of President Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. Multiple voices (including artists Joan Jonas, Kathy High, and Rodney Evans) read lines from the testimony over lush Super 8 footage of zoo animals. The narrators’ shifting voices, pronouns, and genders, juxtaposed with images of captive animals, highlight still-pertinent issues of morality, power, and voyeurism in contemporary culture.
