Christy Chan reprises her performance The Long Distance Call, a live re-enactment of phone calls between Chan and Miss Anne, a KKK seamstress in Alabama. Chan obtained an authentic Klan robe for her video work, fabricated by Miss Anne according to Chan’s specifications. Their unsettling yet banal phone calls tell a disturbing and human story of an unexpected interaction between the two women, from trust gained to the eventual abrupt end of their communication.
"Miss Anne" is performed by actress Catherine Lerza; "Sue" is performed by actress Gail Jones; Christy Chan plays herself.
